As of today, June 4, there are only three days remaining to vote – two Advance Voting days and on Election Day, Tuesday, June 9th.
In addition to state and national choices, local voters will select either Mitzy Moye or Ron Johnson as the next Mayor of Donalsonville. Ballots can be viewed at mvp.sos.ga.gov and at all voting locations.
Each of the city’s 1849 registered voters has the opportunity to direct that future and it is an obligation as a citizen to take the time and vote.
As of 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 4, 410 votes have been cast in person, and county wide, 1,014 absentee ballots have been requested by voters.
Advance in-person voting for the June 9 Special Election and the statewide General Primary and Presidential Preference Primary will continue from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. weekdays through Friday, June 5. All advance voting takes place in the Office of the Probate Court in the Seminole County Courthouse located at 200 South Knox Avenue in Donalsonville. The final opportunity to cast a vote will be on Election Day, June 9, from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
To make the voting process run as smoothly as possible voters are reminded they must have either a Georgia Driver’s License or photo identification and poll workers are requesting voters have their form of identification out and ready to present to the election staff.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic still causing widespread health concerns in the community, the following precautions will be taken for advanced in person voting.
Wearing a mask of some sort is strongly encouraged but will not be required. No more than two people will be allowed in the voting area of the Office of the Probate Court, and without exception, children will NOT be permitted in the voting area.
All voters will be expected to maintain and adhere to social distancing requests and remain six feet apart. Spacing distance will be marked on the floor of the lobby of the Seminole County Courthouse. In an effort to sanitize the electronic ballot marking devices (BMDs), please allow the elections staff time to wipe down each machine after it is used.
The Secretary of State’s Office has mailed absentee ballot applications to every registered voter in every county in the State of Georgia. If you did not or have not received your application and would like an application for an absentee ballot, please contact the Office of the Probate Court by phone at (229)524-5256 or email at [email protected], to request your application.
