Voters may begin voting early the week of Aug. 2 to Aug. 6 for the primary run-off. According to chief registrar Tracy Dean, you may vote in the run-off even if you did not vote in the July 20 primary.
If you did vote in the primary, you must vote on the same ticket.
Due to logic and accuracy testing of the touch screen units, voting will not begin until 10 a.m. on Monday morning Aug. 2 and continue until 5 p.m.
Voting hours for Tuesday though Friday will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the registrar’s office. There will be no absentee voting on the Monday prior to the election.
Georgia law requires you to show photo identification when voting in person. A list of acceptable forms are: a Georgia driver’s license, even if expired; a valid employee photo ID from any branch, department, agency or entity of the U.S. Government, Georgia, or any county, municipality, board, authority or other entity of this state; valid U.S. passport; valid U.S. Military photo; valid tribal photo ID and any valid state or federal government issued photo ID, including a free voter ID card issued by the registrar’s office or the Georgia Department of Drivers’ Services.

This election is yet another example of why local commissioners races should be non-partisan. Anyone who "won" their seat on the BOC should be ashamed. You did not win anything. All the voters who voted in the Democratic primary to cast our vote for Governor, Sentate, etc. were denied the right to vote in the commissioners' races. This REALLY needs to be addressed. Soon.
all elections should be non-partisan. a canidate running for a commissioner seat should have to live in a district but be voted on by all the county. after all he/she will hopefully serve all the people and not just the ones in his/her district. the commissioners can take steps to make this happen if they would. push them to do this.
