Two bills authored by District 23 state Rep. Mark Hamilton were recently signed into law by Gov. Nathan Deal. House Bill 92 shortens the early voting period from 45 to 21 days as a cost-saving measure.
It also requires polls to be open on one Saturday during the early voting period to improve access for those whose work schedules don’t allow them to vote on weekdays.
Hamilton said he worked hard “to gain bipartisan support and passage for this common-sense legislation.”
“This legislation, which does not affect mail-in or election day voting, will save taxpayers in almost every community across Georgia and is estimated to save Forsyth County anywhere between $10,000 to $25,000 annually,” Hamilton said.
