Albany - A less than 'Super' voter turn-out is expected for Super Tuesday. Ten states are holding Presidential primaries. A Georgia flag referendum and a Ward 4 city commission run-off election in Albany are expected to draw more voters to the polls.
When you reach the polls on Super Tuesday, you'll find nine names on the Democratic Presidential Primary ballot. But some of those candidates, such as Howard Dean and Wesley Clark, have already dropped out of the race.
"Unfortunately, we never have a really great turnout for the presidential primary," said Elections Supervisor Carolyn Hatcher. Only 27% of Dougherty County registered voters cast a ballot in the 2000 Presidential Primary.
Voting in the Democratic Presidential Primary Tuesday doesn't tie you to the party. Anyone can vote in the primary and that doesn't affect your General election vote.
"You pick a party. Then when November election comes along, you can certainly pick a person," said Hatcher.
Georgia voters will also choose a state flag. You'll choose between a flag adopted last year which resembles the national flag of the Confederacy and the 2001 primarily blue flag.
"You vote for the candidates for Presidential preference then hit 'Next' on the machine to get to the next page to vote for the flag issue," said Hatcher.
Albany Ward 4 voters will cast two ballots - one for the primary and flag issue and another for the city commission run-off between incumbent Bo Dorough and challenger Joann Pope. That means those voters will fill out two voter registration forms and use two voting machines.
"It may take a little longer for people voting in two elections of course," said Hatcher. Extra poll workers will be on hand at the Ward 4 precincts to help voters. And, Hatcher says Super Tuesday should run more smoothly than the February special election because poll managers were retrained on the electronic voting machines to avoid problems.
