Nearly a week into early voting for the primary election run-off, the current number of registered voters for Liberty County is 29,580 voters, Liberty County Election Supervisor Ella Golden said.
Early voting for the run-off began July 2, and will continue through July 20 at 5 p.m. Election Day is July 24, and the polls will remain open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
This run-off follows the May 22 vote when the numbers were too close to determine a winner.
Golden said that so far, from both polling locations, the historic courthouse in Hinesville and the Liberty County Community Complex in Midway, the total number of votes is at 191.
Voting is open for the Liberty County School Board of Education District 4 seat, which will be vacated by Marsha Anderson at the end of her term. The race is between candidates Jim Johns and Annette Payne.
Statewide, Secretary of State Brian Kemp and Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle face in each other for the Republican nomination to run for governor. The winner on July 24 will face the former State House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams (D) in November’s general election.
