The Gwinnett County Voter Registrations and Elections Division mailed its first official bilingual mass mailing Friday, Aug. 18, sending approximately 12,000 bilingual letters to Lilburn and Snellville voters advising them of city polling location changes.

The Voter Registrations and Elections Division provides voter registration material and oral assistance in Spanish and continues to seek input from the public about ways to better serve the Hispanic community. The division created an online feedback form, and its staff is attending community events to publicize these new changes and recruit for bilingual poll officials.

Gwinnett County is the first county in Georgia to be named a language minority jurisdiction under Section 203 of the federal Voting Rights Act.
