The presidential primary is Tuesday, but we bet you knew that already.

What you might not know is that polling precincts in Hall County have changed since the last presidential election. Here’s a quick summary of the changes approved in 2015.

And two more changes have been made since then. Those who were voting at the Hall County Sheriff’s Office South Hall headquarters on Cody Drive will return to voting at the Prince of Peace Catholic Church at 6349 Spout Springs Road. Those who voted in November at the Gainesville Civic Center will now vote at the First Baptist Church at 751 Green St.

One of the best ways to confirm where you need to go to vote, and to make sure you are indeed registered to vote, is to check out the Secretary of State’s My Voter Page.

Now that you know where to go, you’ve need to decide which candidate you like best. Yes, some of you probably made up your minds a while ago, but for those who haven’t, here are links to the sections of each candidate’s website where they tell you where they stand on the issues. Note, there will be other candidates on your ballot, but those listed here are the ones still officially in the race.


• Ben Carson
• Ted Cruz
• John Kasich
• Marco Rubio
• Donald Trump


• Hillary Clinton
• Bernie Sanders

You must pick either a Democratic or Republican ballot, though you do not need to be a registered member of a party to do so. The presidential primary will be the only item on the ballot. Other local, state and federal races will be voted on May 24.
