More than 8,800 of Bryan County’s 30,721 registered voters by Wednesday morning had cast ballots in person or by absentee ballot for the Nov. 8 general election, according to early voting numbers provided by the Bryan County Elections Office.
The turnout somewhat mirrors that across the state, where high profile races for the U.S. Senate and governor’s seat have attracted national attention.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said Wednesday more than 1.76 million voters have cast ballots during early voting in advance of the Nov. 8 midterm election.
While early voting was held at Pembroke City Hall and the Recreation Department Gym on Timber Trail, voters who wait until Nov. 8 to cast their ballot will go to their precinct. Precincts will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. If any runoffs are necessary, those will be held Dec. 6.
In addition to high profile federal and state races, Bryan County voters will be choosing who will serve on the Bryan County Board of Education as chairman and in the District 1, District 4 and District 5 seats.
A referendum allowing the sale of liquor by the drink beginning at 11 a.m. on Sundays is also on the ballot. You can check your ballot online at mvp.sos. ga.gov.
