According to the official website, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced the postponement of the Georgia Primary Election to June 9, 2020.
“This decision allows our office and county election officials to continue to put in place contingency plans to ensure that voting can be safe and secure when in-person voting begins and prioritizes the health and safety of voters, county election officials, and poll workers,” he said on the website.
Raffensperger cited difficulties from county election officials brought on by COVID-19 and modeling projections pointing to the estimated peak of the virus, as the reasons for the change in date.
“The voter registration deadline for the June 9, 2020 election will be May 11, 2020. Early voting will begin on May 18, 2020. Pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 21-2-501, moving the primary election to June 9, 2020 will move the primary runoff to August 11, 2020,” according to the website.
