Recount Information

The Bartow County portion of the November 3, 2020 Presidential Election Recount will begin at 9:00 on Monday, November 30th at the Board of Elections Office located at 1300 Joe Frank Harris Pkwy.  The process will begin with a brief training session followed by an accuracy test of the scanner that we will use to conduct the recount.  After that we will scan every ballot cast in that election through a high speed scanner to re-tabulate the results. 

The process will run from 9-5 on Monday, 8-5 on Tuesday, and 8-complete on Wednesday (we could possibly work until Midnight on Wednesday).  We may break for 30 minutes each day for lunch. 

Each party may appoint up to 2 official monitors, and each campaign may appoint 1 official monitor to observe the process.  Anyone who wishes to be an official monitor should contact your local party, and anyone else who wants to observe may do so from the public viewing area as long as there is space.

Any questions about this process should be directed to Joseph Kirk at (770) 387-5098.
