Vote

Early voting for the Aug. 11 runoff elections starts Monday, July 20.

Voters who want to cast their ballots early can visit the Madison County Board of Elections and Registration Office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday between July 20 and Aug. 7.

“We will continue to go by the CDC (Center for Disease Control) recommendations on social distancing,” said elections board chairperson Tracy Dean. “I do encourage voters to vote by mail or early voting.”

Those who did not vote and those who voted a nonpartisan ballot in the June 9 election are eligible to vote in the Aug. 11 runoff. But whatever ballot style you chose in the June 9 election is the way you will have to vote in the runoff. Someone who voted in the Democratic primary cannot vote in a Republican runoff and vice versa.

Absentee ballot applications are being accepted for the runoff election. Contact the Board of Elections and Registration at 706-795-6335 or tdean@madisonco.us for more information. Once an absentee ballot is received, the voted ballot may be mailed to the elections office or dropped off in the drop box at the office. Sample ballots can be viewed at www.mvp.sos.ga.gov
