Early voting begins Monday

By Ken Stanford Contributing Editor

Early voting begins Monday in Georgia for the July 24 primary runoffs.

Lori Wurtz, who is in charge of the elections office in Hall County, notes that even if you did not vote in the primaries May 22, but were eligible to do so, you may vote July 24; if you voted a non-partisan ballot the first time around, you may vote in the runoff.  However, if you voted in either the Democratic or Republican Primary May 22, you cannot change parties if you vote July 24.

Early in-person voting will continue through July 20.  In Hall County, the county elections office will be the only place for early voting (Monday-Friday, 8:00-5:00) and there will be no Saturday voting.

Meanwhile, absentee ballots for "by mail" voting are still available at the elections office and on the county's website.  A written request for the absentee ballots is required but you do not have to state a reason for making the application.  July 20 is the last day the elections office can issue an absentee ballot to a would-be voter.

There are no local races on the Hall County runoff ballots, only state races for governor, lieutenant governor and secretary of state on the Republican ballot and state schools superintendent on the Democratic ballot.
