Early Voting Gets Underway

Registration Deadline is October 6

Savannah Mayor Otis Johnson, along with other Savannah leaders and residents voted early in person on Monday, September 22nd.

Savannah Mayor Otis Johnson and other community leaders were among those taking advantage of Early Voting. Although Early Voting has started for the November 4 Election, citizens may still register until October 6 and vote in this historic election.

This is the first election under GA's new laws which allows people to absentee vote in person without giving a reason. An historic voter turnout is expected this year which means long lines on election day and everyone is urged to vote now at your county registrar's office if possible.
