Liberty County voters will get a chance to vote in the upcoming midterm election on a Sunday, after the county commission approved a resolution Tuesday. It allows voters to cast ballots on Oct. 26 ahead of the Nov. 4 elections.
Early voting starts Monday and runs weekdays through Oct. 31 at the Historic Courthouse in Hinesville and east-end complex in Midway. Early voting also includes Saturday, Oct. 25, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Voting the next day will be noon-5 p.m.
The resolution to allow Sunday voting passed 4-3, with Commissioners Eddie Walden, Connie Thrift and Pat Bowen opposed. Chairman Donald Lovette and commissioners Marion Stevens, Justin Frasier and Gary Gilliard voted yes.
Other jurisdictions across the state have also approved Sunday voting, sometimes sparking controversy. The Courier is working on a more indepth story about the issue.
