According to the latest early-voting numbers available Friday morning from the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office:
Number of ballots cast: 46,494
Number of ballots voted in person: 41,575
Number of mail-in ballots returned: 4,919
Number of mail-in ballots outstanding: 4,537
Turnout for special elections are usually tricky to predict. The last time a special election was held in the same congressional district in 1999, it drew more than 79,200 voters.
How to vote early
Any voter registered in the district can vote early.
Check before you go: These are not your regular neighborhood polling places. The municipalities are only opening select sites during the early-voting period.
Use the Secretary of State Office's online "my voter page" website (www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do) to find a specific early-voting location or to see a sample ballot. You can also use this link to find your regular precinct to vote on Election Day.
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.
No “ballot selfies” are allowed at the polls, so wait to snap a photo until you’re outside. It is illegal in Georgia to take pictures of a ballot or voting equipment, but the Secretary of State Office has said it has seen voters in previous elections post “ballot selfies” on social media — something that could get you in trouble with the law.
Information about local elections and your "My Voter Page" can also be found on the free "GA SOS" app for your smartphone via iTunes or Google Play for Android.
