Registered voters in Bryan County can begin casting ballots today.
Early voting will run 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through Nov. 4 and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29. Voting can be done at either the Bryan County Courthouse, 51 N. Courthouse St., in Pembroke or the County Administrative Complex, 66 Capt. Matthew Freeman Drive, in South Bryan.
Voting precincts (http://bit.ly/2eg9I2c) will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Nov. 8.
Aside from the presidential election, one U.S. Senate seat is contested, as is the state house seat in District 160 for voters in North Bryan. Democrat James Woodall is challenging incumbent Republican Jan Tankersley.
While there are no contested county offices on the ballot, voters will have the opportunity to decide on four state constitutional amendments. Those are:
Amendment 1: state takeover of “chronically failing” schools; Amendment 2: generating revenue for the Safe Harbor for Sexually Exploited Children Fund; Amendment 3: replacing the Judicial Qualifications Commission; and Amendment 4: allocation of revenue from the sale of fireworks.
A decision last week by U.S. Federal District Judge William T. Moore Jr. to extend voter registration in Chatham County until Oct. 18 did not affect Bryan County or any other county in Georgia.
