Atlanta City Council Member Andrea Boone Issues Statement on the Selection of the C.T. Martin Natatorium and Recreation Center as an Early Voting Site

ATLANTA—District 10 City Council member Andrea Boone has issued a statement to notify area residents in southwest Atlanta that the C.T. Martin Natatorium and Recreation Center is a designated early voting site for the special elections for the Fulton County Board of Commissioners District 6 seat and the Atlanta Board of Education District 2 seat:

“We are excited the election board members have agreed to include the C.T. Martin Natatorium and Recreation Center as an early voting site. Early voting relieves crowding at voting facilities on Election Day.

This voting site is in proximity of the surrounding neighborhoods and it will assist in increasing voter participation.

Due to innumerable circumstances, there are residents that rely on local facilities to exercise their constitutional right to vote. We heard the public’s outcry to add the facility to the list of early voting sites and the C.T. Martin Center helps give residents a greater immediacy to be involved in their community. Thank you to the Fulton County Board of Registration and Elections and to Board of Commissioners Chairman Robb Pitts.”

Early voting began today for the September 17 special election for the two seats.
