If you’re free this Saturday, you can go vote. It is the one weekend day that all Georgia counties will offer early voting for the March 1 presidential preference primary.
Early voting in Georgia is well underway with just over a week left for voters to cast advance ballots.
The three-week period for in-person early voting in the state allows residents to cast their ballots before Election Day. Absentee voters can also cast their ballots by mail during this time.
Several counties added more early voting sites for this year’s primary due to high demand in 2012. Counties encourage their residents to vote early to avoid potential long lines on Election Day.
The last day for early voting in Georgia is Feb. 26. Many sites will offer extended hours during the last week of early voting.
Where to vote
Any registered voter in Georgia can vote early. To verify voter registration and find early voting sites, please visit the Georgia My Voter Page. The Georgia Secretary of State's site is also a helpful tool.
Some counties, including Fulton, will also offer Sunday hours.
