766 inactive voters removed from Stephens County voter rolls

Stephens County Registrar Eureka Gober has announced that 766 inactive registered voters are being purged from the Voter Rolls.

She says anyone who hasn’t voted in the last two elections will be removed.

If you would like to remain on the roll, and vote in the Presidential Preference Primary in March, you must call the Stephens County Registrar’s Office and re-register before February 24.

“Voters that have been deleted from the voter registration, because they haven’t voted in the past two elections, they need to call up here to see if they are still registered to vote in the Presidential Preference Primary, and if they are not on the list, they need to register before February 24, to vote in the Presidential Election,” she said.

To view a sample ballot for the Presidential Preference Primary you can go by the Registrar’s Office, located inside the Stephens County Historic Courthouse, or you can log into the My Voter Page on the Secretary of State’s website at sos.ga.gov.

Again, Gober says the deadline to be added back to the voter roll is February 24.

“They can just call the office and ask if they are still registered to vote. If not, they can go online and register or come up here and register,” she said.

Gober adds that anyone wishing to receive an absentee ballot can request an application now.

“First we have to send you an application and then when you send it back to us we will send you the ballot. She’s been sending those out this week, and those have to be back by March 24, at 7 p.m. when the polls close,” she said.

The Presidential Preference Primary election will be held on Tuesday, March 24, at the Senior Center, located on Roselane.

Early voting begins Monday, March 2, and will run Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. until Friday, March 20, at the Stephens County Registrar’s Office.
