Election Day

Elections hosts poll official hiring events

Lawrenceville – Citizens looking for ways to get involved in the electoral process and give back to the community are invited to Gwinnett County’s upcoming poll official hiring events on Feb. 21 in Norcross and Feb. 24 in Snellville.

The Voter Registrations and Elections Division is looking for citizens of all backgrounds, but has an urgent need for bilingual poll workers, particularly Spanish speakers.

Voting is a hard-won privilege

Today, I went to vote. I saw young people, some sporting piercings and tattoos, others wielding briefcases and braving high heels. I saw older Americans, many walking to stand in the voting line, stooped over and moving only with the aid of a cane.

(GCPS) New starting date 2014-15 school year

Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) has released a revised 2014-15 school calendar that calls for the district to return to school on Tuesday, August 5 – one day earlier than originally scheduled. The change in the calendar is due to the need for a student/teacher holiday on November 4, which is Election Day. This day was originally slated to be a school day; however, as this year’s election includes several major races, including contests for Governor and a vacated U.S. Senate seat, election traffic is likely to be high.
