Board of Elections & Registration
Purpose
The Heard County Board of Elections and Registration functions as the Election Superintendent of Heard County. The Board also functions as the voter registration authority and is in charge of conducting absentee voting for all elections on the county, state and federal level.

In addition, the Board provides the municipalities of Heard County with a voter list for all municipal elections.

The Heard County Board of Elections and Registration has entered into an agreement with the City of Franklin, City of Ephesus, and the Town of Centralhatchee to conduct their elections. The respective cities are responsible for qualifying candidates and maintaining required ethics paperwork. The Board conducts absentee voting, hires Election Day poll workers, posts required election notices, and certifies the election.
The Secretary of State’s Office has established a secure website and free-access telephone number for provisional ballot voters to access to determine whether their provisional ballots were counted and if not, the reason why.

The website is currently offline due to there not being an active election.

The free access number is
1-844-537-5375.
