Whether you’re a Republican or Democrat, if you know who you’d like to next vote into the White House, you can participate in the upcoming presidential primary as early as Monday, Jan. 28.

The advanced ballot option will run from Monday to Friday, Feb. 1, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Voter Registration Office at 151 S. College Street in Pembroke and the Courthouse Annex at 9930 Ford Avenue in Richmond Hill.

Bryan County Chief Registrar Warren Miller said advanced voting it basically a form of absentee voting. To request an absentee ballot for mail-in, you can stop by the Voter Registration Office or download the application from their website at Once you’ve filled out the application, you can bring, mail, or fax it to the registrar.

"Next week, you can do it in person or just do the advanced or early voting," Miller said. "If you do get an absentee ballot, we have to receive it by Election Day – but the sooner the better."

Miller said they will accept ballots from active duty military after Election Day – as long as the envelope has been postmarked Feb. 5.
