Early voting in presidential preference primary underway

            Voters may begin casting early ballots to choose the presidential nominees for both parties on Monday, February 19th at the recreation center in Roper Park. Early voting lasts through Friday, March 8.

            Early voting hours at the community center are 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. There will be two Saturday voting days (February 24th and March 2nd) with hours 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the rec. center.

            Voters may go to the regular precinct polling stations on Tuesday, March 12th from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

            Elections supervisor Stacey Godfrey said there is only one question on the ballot for each party. Voters must choose their party and will then select their choice for presidential nominee. She encouraged voters to be informed on their choice as many of the candidates have officially dropped out of the race. “It’s only one question, voters should know who they are voting for before they arrive,” she said. Godfrey said poll workers will be very cautious offering any comments and will not be able to answer questions regarding campaign news.

            Godfrey said no third party ballots are available in Georgia. Only the Democrats and Republicans qualified to have ballots. Godfrey anticipated some people will be seeking some other party ballot, but they are simply not available.

            She also said some callers into their office erroneously believe this is the General Election, possibly because of news already discussing a Biden-Trump matchup people have forgotten that this is the Primary Election. The General Election will be held in November.

            Voters will need to bring a valid photo identification with them to vote.
