GEORGIA SOS MOVES PRIMARY TO JUNE
Georgia’s primary election, originally slated for May 19, has been pushed to June 9.
Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said that Gov. Brian Kemp’s extended state of emergency and shelter in place order impacted early voting.
“Due to the Governor’s extension of the state of emergency through a time period that includes almost every day of in-person voting for an election on May 19, and after careful consideration, I am now comfortable exercising the authority vested in me by Georgia law to postpone the primary election until June 9,” Raffensperger said.
The voter registration deadline for the June 9 election is now May 11. Early voting will begin on May 18, and the primary runoff will be Aug. 11.
Raffensperger said pushing the primary election back any further could impact the November election.
Absentee ballot applications for the upcoming primary election will continue to be accepted and processed by counties even if the application said May 19, according to the release.
Once county election officials properly verify the signature on the application, the voter will be sent an absentee ballot for the primary election now to be held on June 9.
Coweta County Elections are handled by a five (5) member Board of Elections and Registration. Members may be contacted through the main office.
