It’s time to vote again.
Early voting starts Monday for the general primary runoff election on July 22, with the Republican runoff between U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston and businessman David Perdue headlining a very short slate of races.
Voters who wish to avoid lines on Election Day may visit the Bulloch County Elections and Voter Registration office in the Bulloch County Courthouse anytime between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. from June 30 to July 18, Bulloch County Election Supervisor Pat Lanier Jones said.
Voters who cast ballots in May must vote on the same party ticket as they did then, she said. Those who voted nonpartisan in May, or who did not vote in May, will be able to select a party, she said.
More information is available by visiting www.mvp.sos.ga.gov or downloading the “My Voter Page” app in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store by searching “GA Votes.” Through the website or app, voters can view sample ballots, find polling locations, check voter registration status and track the status of their absentee ballot, according to Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp.
There will be no Saturday voting for the runoff election.
On Election Day, July 22, all normal polling places will be open throughout the county.
On the Republican ballot, Kingston is opposed by Perdue, a cousin of former Gov. Sonny Perdue, for the seat being vacated by the retiring U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga.
The winner will face Democrat Michelle Nunn, the daughter of former U.S. Sen. Sam Nunn, in the November general election.
Also on the Republican ballot, Michael L. “Mike” Buck faces Richard L. Woods for state school superintendent.
On the Democratic ballot, Alisha Thomas Morgan and Valarie D. Wilson face off for the state school superintendent seat.
The winners of these runoff races will face each other in November.
The general election will be Nov. 4, with early voting for that election beginning Oct. 13 and ending Oct. 31. The registration deadline to vote in that election is Oct. 6.
