Early voting for July 22 runoff begins

Early voting starts Monday for the run-off election, with several statewide races and a local race on the ballot.

Secretary of State Brian Kemp says there are some restrictions on who can vote.

“Anybody that voted in the first primary election held back in May is eligible to vote in the runoff,” said Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

“They have to pull the same ballot as the pulled in that primary.”

Those who voted in the Republican Primary must vote in the GOP runoff.

If you didn’t vote in the primary, you can still vote in the runoff but only for one party.

Here in Polk County, voters will decide the next Superior Court judge for the Tallapoosa Judicial Circuit.

Cedartown attorney Chuck Morris and Tallapoosa attorney Meng Lim are vying for that seat.

Advanced in-person voting will be at the elections office at 144 West Ave, Suite D from 9:00am-5:00pm, Monday-Friday.

Early voting in Rockmart at the Nathan Dean Center will be July 14 -July 18 from 9:00am-5:00pm Monday-Friday.
