Preparations are underway for the July run-off election in Georgia.
Stephens County Registrar Theresa Kelley said that those who have requested mail-in, paper absentee ballots for the run-off election should receive them next week.
Kelley said that there are run-offs for both the Republican and the Democratic parties.
“If you voted Republican in the May 20th primary, you will get an absentee ballot for the run-off, if you requested one, for the Republican run-off,” said Kelley. “The same goes for the Democratic run-off. If you did not vote in the election in May, you can vote in the one in July. You just have to choose your ballot style. If you voted non-partisan, you can choose your ballot style for the run-off.”
Kelley said anyone that needs to request a mail-in, paper absentee ballot for the run-off can do so by contacting her office.
The deadline to request a mail-in, paper absentee ballot is July 18 and the actual run-off election day is July 22.
Early voting for the run-off will take place from June 30 through July 18 downstairs in the Stephens County Government Building. There is no Saturday voting for the run-off.
There are no local races on the ballot.
Republican voters will be deciding a U.S. Senate run-off between Jack Kingston and David Perdue, with the winner moving onto the November election.
Meanwhile, both Democratic and Republican voters will be deciding State School Superintendent run-offs, with the winners again moving to November to face each other.
