  • VII Election Office Update:  There is now an additional congressional district in Lumpkin.  One member inquired as to how additional polling places coule be properly requested, as a constituent had expressed their discontent with the fact that Luumpkin County only had one.  It was suggested that the person with the concerns contact Elections Manager Peck directly.  There are free services to take people to the polls.  Key to another polling location would be lines at current place.  About 50% of constituents voted early or used absentee ballots during the 202 election cycle.
