The last day of advanced voting is today for residents voting in municipal elections in Allenhurst, Hinesville, Riceboro and Walthourville, and on the countywide questions on homestead exemption amendments.
Voting is taking place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Liberty County Voter Registration Office at 102 S. Commerce St. in Hinesville.
As of Thursday morning, more than 500 people had participated in early voting, including nearly 200  Wednesday alone, exceeding the expectations of Liberty County Chief Registrar Ella Golden.
“We’re getting them in and out as fast as we can,” she said. “We’ve been steadily working. We’ve been hard at it.”
Staffers with the voter registration office said they were expecting today  to be busy and advised residents to come prepared with proper documentation to keep the process moving as fast as possible.
Voters are required to show a valid state or federal government issued photo ID, active or expired Georgia Driver’s License; federal, state, county or municipality employee photo ID, U.S. passport, military ID or tribal photo ID.
Voters without one of these forms of identification can pick up a free Georgia voter ID card from the voter registration office or any Georgia Department of Driver Services location.
To attain a free voter ID card, citizens must provide a photo identity document or approved non-photo identity document that includes full legal name and date of birth, documentation showing the voter’s date of birth, evidence that the applicant is a registered voter and documentation showing the applicant’s name and residential address.
For more information on advanced voting, the new ID requirements or how to obtain a free voter ID card, call the Liberty County Voter Registration Office at 876-3310.
