Advance absentee voting for the July 31 primaries is strong in Barrow County, according to numbers released Wednesday evening by elections supervisor Monica Franklin.
“We have had 683 vote early in person, and 230 ballots were mailed out,” she said. “Of the 683 in-person votes, 603 were Republican, 77 were Democratic, and three were Non-Partisan.”
Of the 230 ballots mailed out, 187 were requested by Republican voters, 42 by Democrats, and one by a Non-Partisan voter. Only half of the mailed ballots have been marked and and returned to the elections office, however.
Early voting began July 9 and ends July 27. That includes one day of weekend voting on Saturday, July 21, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. All in-person voting is at the county government's administration building at 233 E. Broad St. For information, call the elections office at 770-307-3110.
