Early vote, then election on Dec. 4
Early voting began Monday for the runoff election for Georgia Secretary of State with Democrat John Barrow and Republican Brad Raffensperger facing off again to succeed Robyn Crittenden, who was appointed by Gov. Nathan Deal to replace Gov.-elect Brian Kemp, and for Public Service Commission District 3 with incumbent Republican Chuck Eaton opposed by Democrat Lindy Miller.
Early voting will continue throughout the week and will be every day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m until Friday at the Elbert County Government Complex.
Early voting will only last a week prior to Election Day and there is no requirement for early voting on a Saturday for the runoff election.
Election Day for the runoff will be next Tuesday, Dec. 4 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with voters to report to their local precincts.
Absentee voting is available for the runoff as long as all mailed ballots are returned to the registrar’s office by 7 p.m. on Election Day.
All registered voters are eligible to cast their ballots in the runoff election regardless if they cast a ballot in the general election.
According to Chief Registrar Charlotte Ward, the total walk-in for Monday, the first day of early voting, was 104. “That’s a lot more than what we expected,” said Ward.
