Fannin Elections Voters’ Guide: Names, Faces And Candidate Information

Election, News, Politics

Local Election Season is on us.  To help you know the candidates, FetchYourNews prepared this Voters’ Guide.  The guide lists the offices on the ballot, underneath each you can see the names and pictures of the candidates.  Also, next to the pictures is a link which takes you information the candidates provided which they prepared themselves. The information is not written by FetchYourNews.

At the bottom of the page, in the comments section, submit questions that you would like FetchYourNews to ask the candidates in later interviews.  The comments are to be in a question form. They should not be editorial comments about why to vote for one candidate or against another.  Laura Love will moderate the questions.

Local and State General Primary Elections are on Tuesday, May 24, 2016.  Early voting begins on May 2.  You can vote during business hours at the Board of Elections at the Fannin County Courthouse.  Saturday voting is on Saturday, May 14th.  You must register by April 26 to vote in the May 24 Elections.

If you have questions about whether you are registered or not or about where your polling place is, there are two ways to find out.  You can call the Fannin County Board of Elections at 706-632-7740.  Also you can go to mvp.sos.ga.gov .  This is on Georgia’s Secretary of State website.  The website asks you for name and address; then it will tell you your registration status and where your poll location is.

If you want your Election Day to be extra red, white and blue, you can be a Fannin County Poll Worker.  Board of Elections Secretary Mary Ann Conner says, “We are always looking for poll workers.” You can contact her at 706-632-7740.

    Could you ask Mr. Simonds how the investigation into the former park and rec director is proceeding since it has been a year since he was terminated under what appears to be the crime of building a successful rec program and increasing rec revenue throughout his career?

    FYN researched your question. Click here to read about the status of the investigation into the rec department. https://fannin.fetchyournews.com/2016/04/25/result-of-gbi-investigation-into-bernie-hodskins-due-soon/
