Look Ahead America’s (LAA) Patriotic Souls to the Polls initiative launched in February, when members of Georgia’s Forsyth County Board of Voter Registrations and Elections approved Sunday voting for the primary.
Forsyth County hosted Sunday voting on May 15 for the first time, and 297 locals came out to cast ballots for the May 24 General Primary and Nonpartisan General Election.
Sunday’s total was higher than both Saturdays at the elections office, 231 voters on May 7 and 229 on May 14, and was the second busiest location for weekend voting so far in the primary behind Sharon Springs Park, which had 344 voters on Saturday, May 14.
Matt Braynard, Look Ahead America’s Executive Director, made the following statement:
With Forsyth County being one of three biggest rural counties, Look Ahead America successfully petitioned for a Sunday vote option in 2022, and we’re encouraged to see greater voter turnout for the newly added Sunday voting days compared to the Saturday for the May primary. We’re optimistic that with our help, Christian leaders will be able to use these additional days to mobilize rural patriots to vote in 2022 in Forsyth County. Other rural counties should take note and follow Forsyth’s example.
