Officials hope for large election turnout Tuesday
W vote
Voters at the polls Tuesday will have plenty of sway in local contested races because of lower-than-expected early voting numbers. Shontay Jones, the deputy registrar with the Bulloch County Voter Registrar's Office, said approximately 8 percent of more than 33,000 registered voters in the county took advantage of early and advanced voting periods lasting nearly one month. Jones said voters cast 2,442 in-person ballots and another 203 mail-in absentee forms for Tuesday’s General Primary Election, which includes contested races for Bulloch County sheriff, Ogeechee Judicial Circuit district attorney and a seat on the Bulloch County Board of Education.
