Polling places for several voting precincts in Buckhead and Sandy Springs will change for the Nov. 3 general election.

Fulton County said the changes are part of a plan to increase the number of polling places and reduce the number of voters assigned to each polling place. The county has seen long lines at polls in elections during the pandemic.

Affected voters will be notified by mail, and notices will be posted at the original polling places on Election Day, according to the county.

The list of local precincts that are affected is below. For more about the election and polling places changes elsewhere in Fulton County, see the county website here.
