LAWRENCEVILLE -- Voters in Gwinnett's newest city should watch out for election information in the mail.
New voter cards were mailed Friday for the residents of Peachtree Corners, the western Gwinnett community where people approved cityhood last year.
The first City Council election is slated for March 6.
"What the card tells them is their district," Elections Superintendent Lynn Ledford said. "If lets them know what post they are eligible to vote for."
The card also gives information on polling location, although that has not changed since November.
While Mike Mason was the sole qualifier to become Peachtree Corner's first mayor, 19 people have qualified for six council seats. The seats are divided into three districts, along with three at-large seats.
Voters can also learn their district information at the Georgia Secretary of State's My Voter Page at www.sos.georgia.gov/MVP/Login.aspx.
The last day to register for the election, which is also the day of the presidential preference primary and a Sunday sales vote in Gwinnett, is Feb. 6.
Voters can now request absentee ballots or advance vote at the Voter Registration Office in Lawrenceville.
A runoff, if needed, is scheduled for April 3.
