More than 140,300 people voted early ahead of Tuesday's runoff between Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff, laying a foundation for what many predict will be a bigger turnout now than the race's original April 18 special election.
With Election Day now here, here’s a primer about voting in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District:
First, you must live in the district! It sounds simple, but interest is so high local officials have reported out-of-district residents showing up to cast a ballot. Only parts of Cobb, DeKalb and Fulton counties are included in the district. If you're unsure, check before you go.
Voters can verify whether they are eligible to vote and confirm their local polling location through the Georgia Secretary of State Office's online "my voter page"website (www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do). You can also call your local county election office.
Don’t forget to bring photo identification, which can include a Georgia driver’s license, even if it’s expired; a state-issued voter identification card; a valid U.S. passport; or a valid U.S. military photo ID.
Election information can also be found on the free “GA SOS” app for your smartphone via iTunes or Google Play for Android.
