Want to vote for governor? Register by Monday
W GeorgiaVoter

      If you want to vote for Nathan Deal or Roy Barnes for governor or John Barrow or Ray McKinney for Congress, Monday is the last day to register to vote to be eligible to cast a ballot in the Nov. 2 general election.
      And all currently registered voters may cast their ballots early, take advantage of mail-out ( absentee) ballots or wait until Nov. 2, said Bulloch County Elections Superintendent Pat Lanier Jones.
      Jones reminded voters all party candidates will appear on the ballot, so voters do not have to select a Democrat or Republican ballot. In the general election, “you can vote for a Democrat for one office, a Republican for one office and a Libertarian for one office,” she said.
      Voters also must bring a valid picture identification card, like a drivers license, when they show up to vote, whether it is early voting or on election day.
      Early voting began Sept. 20 and will continue through Oct. 29. Voters either may go to the Bulloch County Courthouse to in the Elections and Registration Office, or they can go to the Honey Bowen Building on Max Lockwood Drive off Fair Road at the Statesboro-Bulloch County Recreation Department, she said. Voting hours in both locations are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
      If voters do not live in House District 157, or Bulloch County Board of Education Districts 2,4,5 or 6, no candidates in those races will appear on that ballot, she said.
      Also, Jones said voters in the Sinkhole district should be aware that the voting precinct has been moved to Union Baptist Church on Union Church Road in Register.
      Jones said voters can access Internet website in order to: check voter registration status, locate the correct polling place, check out a sample ballot, obtain an absentee ballot form, and check times and locations of early voting.
