Notice to Spring Place voters - your precinct has not moved, it is in the same building where it has been for several years.  The building that was once the Spring Place United Methodist Church is now owned by the Salvation Army, as the sign indicates.  You will enter the building by the front doors and will be voting in what was once the sanctuary.

The General Election in Georgia for 2022 will be on November 8th. 

Because of changes in election law made by the Georgia General Assembly in 2021 the schedule for absentee voting is different from what it was in 2020.  The earliest date that the  Election Office can accept an application for an absentee ballot is August 22nd.  The last day an application may be accepted is October 28th.

Advanced voting for the General Election will begin  on October 17 and continue until November 4th.  Saturday voting in Murray County will be held on October 22nd and October 29th.  Advanced voting hours 9:00am until 5:00 pm.  Murray County does not conduct advanced voting on Sunday.  Advanced voting is conducted at the  Murray County Recreation Department on Hyden Tyler Road.  The Recreation Center is located at the entrance to the Veterans Memorial Park.

The registration deadline to be eligible to vote in the November 8th General Election is October 11th.   Registration may be done in person in the Election Office or on line at the website of the Secretary of State (www.sos.ga.gov).  This Murray County website also has a link to print out a voter registration application.



The drop box for ballots in Murray is located in the office of the Board of Elections and Registration in the courthouse annex.

To see a sample ballot,  go to the My Voter Page on the Secretary of State's website and put in your information.  It will show you the ballot you will use when you vote.  You can print it out if you wish.
