Normally those interested gather at the Courthouse to await the results from the election.

Heard County Sheriff Ross Henry has informed the Elections Office that the upper floor of the Courthouse will not be open for visitors on Election Night.

Furthermore, the number of people allowed in the bottom floor where the Elections Office is located will be limited to Elections Officials and Official Poll Watchers.

Those wishing to gather in Franklin to find out the results will be allowed to congregate outside of the Elections Office that evening. Everyone is encouraged to practice social distancing while waiting.

A representative from the Board of Elections and Registration will announce the results as they come in.

Please note that no results will be announced until they are first reported to the Secretary of State.

Everyone is encouraged to monitor elections results online.

The Secretary of State will have a website available to view results from around the state.

    Please vote. It is your right and the only way to make your voice heard for the political world. Vote for the candidate of your choice and support them if elected. If they do not get elected, do not stop being an active part of your local government. The local races are the most important because they influence each of us in Heard County. Regardless of who wins these positions, accept it and support them please.
