New Advance Voting Site For Older Adults Established
The Douglas County Board of Elections and Registration Department will provide a 6th advance voting location geared to older adults age 55 and older during the primary and general election cycle in 2020. The Elections and Registration Department has coordinated with the Woodie Fite Senior Center to provide a secured area for older adults to vote in the Woodie Fite Senior Center located at 8750 Dorris Road, Douglasville, Ga. 30134.
“We are trying to accommodate all our voting citizens but also increase our customer service focusing on Douglas County’s older adult population,” said County Elections Director Milton Kidd.
The schedule for advance voting for 2020 is March 9-March 13, 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., May 4-May 8, 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and October 19-October 23, 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
The County intends to run shuttle van services from the Douglas County Transportation Center and the Courthouse to the Woodie Fite Center and other county locations. Free transportation for voting purposes only will be provided, but must be scheduled 24 hours in advance. Any citizens interested are asked to call 770-920-7213 to schedule a pick up.
