ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Election officials worry Tuesday's runoffs will get lost in the shuffle of back to school activities.

All precincts statewide will be open from 7:00 AM until 7:00 PM. The Republican ballot will include the Governor, Attorney General, Insurance commissioner, and various local races. The only statewide runoff on the Democratic side is for Secretary of State. Election officials remind you each vote counts.

"We always like to encourage people to turn out and vote because their vote does make a difference. In the July Primary there was election statewide that was won and lost by under 500 votes so every vote does count," said Veronica Johnson, Lee County Elections Superintendent.

Election officials say early voting leading up to Tuesday's run-off was slow. Remember, if you voted in the July 20th primary, you must cast the same party's ballot for the runoff. If you didn't vote three weeks ago, you can choose either party.
