Two polling places for some voters

Hinesville voters should take a look at their voter registration cards before heading to the polls next month because there is a good chance some residents will have to visit two separate polling sites to cast ballots, according to a local election official.
All Hinesville residents are assigned to the Charles M. Shuman Recreation Center to vote in the city’s mayoral and council seat races and on the Sunday alcohol referendum, but the two countywide ballot questions could cause a few voters to stop at a second polling place.
Residents’ polling sites for the county questions concerning homestead exemption amendments will depend on which county polling precincts they are assigned to, Liberty County Chief Registrar Ella Golden said.
She explained some residents are required to vote on the amendments at the Shuman Center, which is the county’s second precinct, while others will be forced to go to one of the five additional county polling locations designated for Hinesville voters.
“If (the second precinct) is your county precinct, then you vote for city elections and the county homestead exemptions at the Shuman Center,” Golden said. “But if your county precinct is (the 11th precinct), for example, you will have to go vote for the county questions at that precinct.”
To avoid confusion on Election Day, the chief registrar said Hinesville residents should check their voter registration cards now to verify their county and city polling sites.
Residents who have lost or have not received their voter registration cards can call the Liberty County Voter Registration Office at 876-3310 or visit the office at 102 South Commerce Street in Hinesville for assistance.
Voters can also check out the Georgia Secretary of State’s Web site at or call the office at 888-265-1115 for information on polling sites.
