Early voting ends this Friday at 5 p.m.

Early voting for the July 22 Democratic and Republican party primary run-off elections wraps up at 5 p.m. this Friday.
Although voter turnout remains slim, interest has picked up since last Tuesday and a total of 166 votes had been cast at the close of business Tuesday. Of that total 122 republican ballots had been cast and 44 democratic ballots.
Last week, state officials reported that 44,342 ballots had been cast in the state, but by early this week that number had grown to 66,662. Of that total 49,831 are republican ballots.
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.
