Countdown to the elections; how to register by Tuesday and when and where to vote

The last month of this election season is finally here and residents wanting to vote in the midterm elections on Nov. 6, 2018, have until Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2018, to register to vote if they are not already registered. If you are a Walton County resident, here’s how to register.

To register to vote in Georgia, you must be:

  • A citizen of the United States
  • A legal resident of Georgia and of the county in which you wish to vote
  • At least 18 years old by Election Day


Early voting begins on Oct. 15 and runs through Nov. 2, with Saturday voting on Oct. 27. Early voting will take place during business hours at the Walton County Board of Elections, 303 S. Hammond Drive, Suite 11, Monroe, GA 30655. If you decide to vote on Election Day, Nov. 6, you will no longer vote at the elections office, but at your official precinct based on your address. Click or tap on this link to find out where your voting precinct is located.

You also can request an absentee ballot mailed to your address to either mail back in before the election date or for you to drop off at the Walton County Board of Elections. Click or tap on this link to request a sample ballot.

The sample ballot lists the special projects to be funded in Walton County should the SPLOST be approved.
