Final Day for Early Voting – What You Should Know

Today is the LAST day of early voting before the general primary runoff on Tuesday, July 24. Polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

Who can vote?

Since Georgia voters aren’t allowed to switch political parties between the primary election and the runoff election, registered voters may follow this criteria: 

  • Those who already cast a Democratic or Republican primary ballot can vote only in that same party’s primary runoffs.
  • Those who did not vote in the primary, or who cast nonpartisan ballots, can vote in either political party’s runoffs.

Where do I vote?

  • Voters can find their polling locations and view a sample ballot on the secretary of state’s “My Voter Page” (MVP) or the “GA SOS” app.
  • Early voting locations are listed statewide by county on the Elections Division website.
  • On Election Day, July 24, 2018, voters must report to their regular neighborhood precincts.

What is on the ballot?

  • Republicans will have runoff contests for governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, and state House Districts 19, 36, 97, 102, 105 and 141.
  • Democrats can vote in runoffs for U. S. House of Representative Districts 6 and 7, state school superintendent, and state House Districts 111 and 144.

The general election date is Nov. 6. Other important election dates are available on the Elections Division website, under the “Voter Info” tab.
