Family Voting Day at Buckhead Library

Family Voting Day will be held on Saturday, Oct. 27

By Alicia Phillips

Fulton County’s Family Voting Day offers registered voters the opportunity to cast their ballots prior to the General Election and on a day that may be more convenient for their schedules.

It also provides an opportunity for children to learn more about the voting process.

Children who accompany registered voters to the polls on Family Voting Day will be given an opportunity to cast a ballot in a mock election for their favorite cartoon character.

Family Voting Day will be held on Saturday, October 27, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Buckhead Library, 269 Buckhead Avenue.

Come join the rest of the Buckhead Patch fans on Facebook!  It's Patch and Facebook together. Doesn't get much better than that.

This is a Great Idea! And it raises an issue that I have pointed out for years. Why don't we have the elections on weekends anyway?! The reason is because we are stuck in a habit/tradition that is well over a hundred years old! Way past time that we had elections on a weekend, perhaps from Fri afternoon to Sun evening. That would increase voter turnout significantly, and would be the most fair and legitimate voting process!

Finally, a government idea that makes sense. My family will definitely attend. Lilly - the Buckhead Library has parking onsite.
