Bryan County residents will be able to participate in early voting for the Nov. 4 presidential and congressional elections beginning Sept. 22.

Residents can vote in person at the Bryan County Registrar’s office in Pembroke from Sept. 22 through Oct. 31, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.. An early voting location at the Richmond Hill Courthouse annex will be open starting Oct. 20.

Voters can also request to receive an absentee ballot in the mail by calling the registrar’s office at 653-3859, or by downloading an application from their website and mailing it in.

Turnout in Bryan County is predicted at between 80 and 85 percent, and elections superintendent Sam Davis expects many residents will vote early in order to avoid waiting in line in November.

"I think a lot of people will do that to try to avoid the crowds on election day," he said.

Georgia eased voting regulations this year and no longer requires voters to present an excuse in order to vote early or by absentee ballot.

Voters must reside in Bryan County and be at least 18 years of age in order to be eligible to vote.

The registration deadline for the Nov. 4 elections is Oct. 6.
