Early voting continues but few are voting in run-off

Only a small number of Georgians have ventured to the polls to cast early votes in the upcoming July 22 Democratic and Republican party primary run-off elections.
Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp reported Monday that only 44,342 Georgia voters had cast ballots.
In Grady County, as of the close of business Tuesday, only 75 early votes have been cast. Of those, 59 are Republican ballots and 16 are Democratic.
Election officials remind local voters that Friday, July 18, is the last day to vote early.
The county’s 13 polling places will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 22.
There is only one race to be determined by Democratic primary voters and that is the race for State School Superintendent between Alisha Thomas Morgan and Valarie D. Wilson.
The two races on the Republican primary runoff ballot are for U.S. Senate and State School Superintendent.
In the runoff for the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, J.H. “Jack” Kingston faces David A. Perdue.
In the state school superintendent race, Republicans must choose between Michael L. Buck and Richard L. Woods.
Grady County election officials remind local voters that those who voted in the Democratic primary on May 20 can only vote in the Democratic primary runoff and the same is true for republicans. Those who voted in the May 20 Republican primary can only vote in the Republican primary runoff.
