Local & County

Oconee County consists of the unincorporated county areas and the four townships of Bishop, Bogart, North High Shoals, and Watkinsville.  Most functions of the county government are covered on its website. The county Board of Elections maintains a bunch of useful links, including rules about voter ID, absentee and early ballots, and the official precinct maps, etc.

The county also has a My Voter Page, although theirs just refers voters to the state MVP page instead.

Each of townships has its own elections board also, for local election issues. For the smaller towns, that’s just city hall, not a special board.

Yes, for the executive branch, it’s President Trump.   (If you must, perhaps try Twitter?)
