The brief early voting period for the August 21st Run-off between US 9th Congressional District hopefuls Doug Collins and Martha Zoller has come to a close.
Voters only had three days to participate in Walk-In Early Voting. The total number of voters in Elbert County that took part in Walk-In Early came out to 146. That number does not include any absentee ballots that have been returned back to the Elbert County Registrar’s Office.
The next step in the Run-Off process is a final voting period to be held tomorrow. Polls will open at 7:00am and will remain open until 7:00pm. Voters who wish to vote in the run-off will have to do so at their assigned voter precincts in the county.
Chief Registrar of Elbert County Charlotte Ward said that those who voted a democratic ballot cannot vote in this run-off.
“Please keep in mind that this is a Republican run-off. If you voted Republican in the General Primary, Voted Non-Partisan, or did not vote at all; you are welcome to come in and vote for the run-off.” said Ward.
Ward said that after the run-off her office will begin preparing for the 2012 November General Elections.
“Since the conversation is out in the community about elections, we want to make sure that we start preparing our records for the November General Election. Please for if any reason you think you are not a registered voter, give us a call and we will get you registered.” said Ward.
