Welcome to the web page of the Henry County Elections Department. As Henry County’s Election Authority, it is my responsibility for administering all elections within Henry County. There are 52 precincts with approximately 36,000 registered voters in the county. This department is also responsible for training deputy registrars, election judges, providing polling places for all precincts, and publishing the Voter’s Information Guide.
On Election Day, the polls are open from 6:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Voters who are not able to vote at their respective precincts on Election Day may qualify to vote absentee. Absentee voting allows voters to cast a ballot prior to Election Day by applying for a ballot through the mail or in person at the County Clerk’s Office. New legislation now provides for early voting and grace period voting. Early voting allows voters to cast a ballot prior to Election Day without having to offer a reason or excuse for wanting to vote early. Grace period voting allows any unregistered qualified elector to register to vote and a registered voter to submit a change of address but must vote their ballot at this time.
