Important Information


Please be aware of the following information regarding absentee voting.

Residence Eligibility


You may have a City of Norcross address, but that does not necessarily mean that you are eligible to vote in a city election. You must reside in the corporate city limits of the city to be able to vote in a city election. If you are in doubt, please contact us at 678-421-2035 to find out if you do officially reside within the city limits.

Change of Residence


If you move outside the city or county in which you are registered to vote within 30 days of an election, you may vote in your old precinct for that election. If you move outside the city or county in which you are registered to vote in excess of 30 days prior to an election, you have lost your eligibility to vote in the city or county of your old residence. You must register to vote in your new county of residence. You will be assigned a new voting precinct and polling location. Remember, if you don’t register to vote by the deadline, you cannot vote in that particular election.

Other Elections


Only municipal elections are held at City Hall in Norcross. You will have to go to your regular county polling place to vote in any other election. If in doubt about where to go, contact Gwinnett County Voter Registration or by visiting the Secretary of State Polling Locator.
