Update on rescheduled primary and bond issue – May 19

  • Votes from the presidential primary are secured and will be tabulated on election night.
  • Those who voted will received a ballot during the general primary without the presidential primary ballot.
  • If voters haven’t already voted, they will receive a presidential primary ballot and a general state and county primary ballot.
  • April 27 begins early voting
  • April 20 registration deadline
  • Barron reported: 

Postcards with an application for voting is being mailed in the county.

State is talking about having an online application, applications sent to 60+ and an application sent to everyone.

Suggested pushing ballot by mail

  • Johnson asked: Since GA is not a party registration state, are general and presidential candidates are on the same ballot? Can voters get what they want?
  • Registration deadline is April 20 for the May 19 primary. Will voters still be eligible to vote in Presidential and General primary?
  • Nuriddin asked for the board to receive all communications before they are released to the public.

Meeting adjourned.
