Find polling places for Election Day Tuesday

Where can you vote on Tuesday May 20th, which is Election Day for the Special Election for Lowndes County Commission District 5, for the Lowndes County Board of Education, and for the elections for judges? Remember, they’re not in November: Tuesday May 20th is the election for these races, unless there’s a runoff. Plus Tuesday is Primary Election Day for the Georgia statehouse, statewide offices, and U.S. Congress. You can find your polling place in My Voter Page by the Georgia Secretary of State.
