Early voting continues in Stephens County

Early voting continues this week in Stephens County for the upcoming general primary election.

Early voting is being held at the Stephens County Historic Courthouse, located at 37 West Tugalo Street, in Toccoa.

The advance voting period will run Monday through Friday until May 20 from 8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

This past Saturday, the Elections Office gave voters an opportunity to cast early ballots; but, if you missed out on that you’ll have another opportunity to cast an advance ballot on Saturday, May 14 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Additionally, if you would like to vote by absentee ballot you can request an application for one by calling the Election Office at 706-886-8954.

The deadline to request an absentee ballot is Friday, May 13, 2022.

Absentee ballots must be returned to the Elections Office no later than 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 24.

At the close of business on Monday, May 9, there were 696 voters to cast ballots either through absentee or advance voting.

Stephens County Election Supervisor Krista Terry says there is an absentee ballot drop box located in the historic courthouse.

She adds that they have set up voting machines on the first floor, as well as the second floor, so that handicapped voters have easier access to the machines.
