“Fulton County’s nearly 800,000 voters have more options than ever to cast their ballots,” said Fulton County Chairman Robb Pitts. “In addition to using one of our 30 Early Voting locations, they now have the option to walk – or roll -- onto one of our Mobile Voting Units and vote.”

The RV size Mobile Units are large enough to each have 8 to 10 voting stations. The new state-of-the-art, fully accessible bus creates create a simple, secure voting experience for voters of all ages and voters with disabilities.

“With historically high voter turnout predicted, we wanted to make sure that our voters can access every available resource,” said Fulton County Elections Director Richard Barron. “With the Mobile Voting Unit, our goal is bring voting to even more Fulton County voters, and to make voting quick and easy.”

The Mobile Voting Units are just one of the many improvements that Fulton County has made to the elections process over the last several months, in addition to more voting sites, equipment, and poll workers.

The county’s new Fulton County Votes App is another improvement, putting information in the palm of voters’ hands, with information early voting & Election Day polling sites, Drop Boxes, to Elections results.
