Vote

Early voting for the June 9 election is coming up next week.

Those wishing to cast their ballots in-person during early voting can do so May 18-June 5 across Braselton’s four-county area.

The June 9 election includes the Presidential Preference Primary and the General Primary.

The Presidential Preference Primary was originally set March 24. Some voters had already cast their ballots in that election before the date was moved due to COVID-19. Those votes already cast will be counted.

The Presidential Preference Primary was initially rescheduled to May 19, the original date of the General Primary. Both of those elections were moved to June 9 due to the threat of COVID-19.
