Voter-registration deadline looms for Georgia presidential primary

The last day to register for Georgia’s presidential primary is Feb. 1. The primary is March 1.

Advance voting is Feb. 8-26, with Saturday voting on Feb. 20.

During advance voting, Bryan County residents may cast their ballots from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday in the commissioners’ meeting room at either the Bryan County Administrative Building, 66 Capt. Matthew Freeman Drive in Richmond Hill, or the Bryan County Courthouse, 42 N. Courthouse St. in Pembroke, Bryan County Board of Elections Chairman Andrew S. Johnson said in an email to the News. Early voting will also take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, at both locations.

Voters are reminded to verify their polling locations for Election Day, March 1, as they might have changed since the last election. Also, where people vote for their city election or for early voting is not necessarily where they will vote on Election Day. To find the correct precinct, go to or call the elections and registration office at 912-653-3859.

Long lines are expected to start at 5 p.m. March 1, when residents who work outside of Bryan County begin making their way home.

“We are expecting record turnout this year,” Johnson said.

Anyone wishing to cast a vote must be a registered voter in Bryan County and must present some form of photo identification.
Valid forms of photo ID are a Georgia driver’s license; valid employee photo ID from any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. government, state of Georgia, or any county, municipality, board, authority or other entity in this state; or a valid U.S. passport, U.S. military photo ID or tribal photo ID.
