With Super Tuesday just over a month away, Bryan County voters who plan to head to the polls in March to vote in the presidential preference primary must be sure they are registered to vote by Monday.
According to Bryan County Chief Registrar Warren Miller, voter registration forms must be submitted or postmarked by the end of business Feb. 6.
Currently, Miller said, there are around 20,000 registered voters in the county. Around 70 percent of them are in Richmond Hill and 30 percent in Pembroke. Miller noted there hasn't been a significant spike in voter registrations lately, but said numbers are up some.
"I think a lot of times, when it's in the news about elections and primaries in adjoining states like South Carolina and Florida, applications pick up a little," Miller said.
Georgia is one of 11 states which will hold a primary or caucus on Super Tuesday. Warren said in the Super Tuesday election, voters will have a choice of a Republican, Democrat or nonpartisan ballot, and they also vote ‘yes' or ‘no' for a countywide Education Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax.
Early voting for both the primary and the ESPLOST will begin Feb. 13.
