Political races could bring voters to polls early

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) – Several races attracting attention in Lowndes County could bring voters to the polls early.

Advanced voting started Monday. The hottest races seem to be for Lowndes Commission Districts two and three, a spot on the Remerton City Council, and a Georgia House seat.

You can vote early from now until July 16 at the Lowndes County Board of Elections Office on North Oak Street.

One voter told us it's important to vote in the primary because if you wait until November, some good candidates could be overlooked.

"I want my governor to care about Valdosta," said Keith Lee, a Lowndes County voter.  "I want my state elected officials, Ag commissioner, insurance commissioner, I need to know they care about Valdosta and that they're not going to do all their work around Atlanta."

You can see your sample ballot, by clicking here.

If you live in Lowndes County, you can also get a ride to the polls. Democrats call (229) 241-1694 or (229) 630-8486. Republicans call (229) 244-0101 or (229) 560-1107.
