2019 Local Elections

October 4, 2019

The 2019 local elections are underway and REALTORS® plan to play a significant role in this year's elections.

November 5th is Election Day for many local municipal races around the metro Atlanta area. Members of the Governmental Affairs Committee are currently evaluating candidates running for these offices. Candidates from cities like Roswell, Johns Creek, Brookhaven, Milton, College Park, Alpharetta, Smyrna and others are all vying to earn the coveted title of "REALTOR® Champion."

A panel of both commercial and residential REALTORS® sat through a series of candidate interviews with contenders running for Mayor and City Council. A recommendation of who the panel feels will best work with our members and protect private property rights will be sent to our ARPAC Board of Trustees for support. The association will notify our members on who was voted as being "REALTOR® Champions" for this year's elections.

Early and Advanced voting for the 2019 municipal elections are set to begin Tuesday, Oct. 15th and will remain open until Friday, November 1st. With some very highly anticipated elections on the horizon, we encourage all REALTORS to take advantage of Early Voting to avoid long lines and assure voting before time runs out. The deadline to register to vote or update your registration is Oct. 7th.

To learn where you can early vote, visit the Secretary of State’s office here and select your county for a list Early Voting locations.
