Only 39 voters cast a ballot last Saturday, one of the smallest turnouts since the inception of Saturday voting in Seminole County.

Advanced voting for the November 6 General Election continues in the Office of the Probate Judge in the Seminole County Courthouse located at 200 S.

The final opportunity to vote in this election will be at the polling place in your precinct on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 6.

All persons eligible to vote in the November 6 General Election may still request absentee ballots by mail from the Seminole County Registrar and voters may also login to their “My Voter Page” at http://mvp.sos.state.ga.us/

The deadline for the registrars to receive an application for an absentee ballot and to mail out an application for an absentee ballot is November 2, at 5:00 p.m.

No absentee ballot may be voted on the day of the election.  Any absentee ballot, which has been voted prior to the day of the election, may be mailed to the registrars on the day of the election, but will not be counted unless it reaches the registrars’ office by 7:00 p.m.. on the day of the election.

In addition to statewide races for Governor, Lt. Governor, Secretary of State and State School Superintentedt, the ballot contains one contested local Seminole County race: Board of Education member Jamaca Coachman faces challenger Spencer Stewart for a post representing District One.
