Two weeks before Ga. Primary election

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) – We are just two weeks away from the primary elections in Georgia.

Even though nearly 5,000 people have already voted in Chatham County, there are still plenty of opportunities.

There are still early votes Monday through Friday and don’t forget this weekend – there are early votes Saturday and Sunday. And thousands of people are taking advantage of these options.

The county has mailed 2,245 ballots and has already received 413. Remember, these must be returned by mail or drop box when polls close on Election Day – either exactly two weeks from Tuesday. You also have until Friday to request an absentee ballot.

The county saw nearly 5,000 voters cast their ballots in person at their five locations in the first week. Take a look at the totals for the first week of in-person voting – so far day one has been the lowest turnout with 874 voters, but the highest day was Tuesday with 1,053 votes, but they still averaged more than 900 first voters a day.

“I usually don’t have time to vote regularly and thought there would be less traffic so I’m glad I got out early to vote, got in and was able to vote and I’m happy” , said Chatham County voter Mokina Reeves.

“I wanted to make sure I got my vote, you gotta vote, it’s important,” said Chatham County voter Allen Weiss.

If you haven’t voted yet, you can hear more about the candidates Tuesday night at a forum in the Civil Right Museum Annex at 6 p.m. , State Representatives for Districts 162, 163, and 164 and for State Senator in Districts 1 and 2.

Of course, early voting is also happening right now in five locations around the county.
