The app launch is part of Fulton County Vote Early Initiative for the November 3 General Election, and will remain in use for future elections.
“The Fulton Votes app is an easy way for voters to get the information they need…in the palm of their hand,” said Fulton County Registration & Elections Director Richard L. Barron. “We’re excited to offer this tool to voters.” The new Fulton Votes app connects voters with key information about early voting, voting by mail, requirements for Voter ID, provides links to key platforms on the Secretary of State’s website and more. The app will be updated throughout the election cycle and beyond. The Fulton Votes app is the latest in Fulton County’s ongoing efforts to expand digital services for residents, with a special focus on expanded mobile services. According to the Pew Research Center, 81% of Americans own a smartphone, and one in five Americans are “smartphone only” Internet users. The Fulton Votes app is available now in the Apple App Store and will be available in the Google Play store for Android users in coming days.
