Albany-- Absentee voting for the July 20th Primary is underway and election workers want to make sure you're not confused.

Poll workers at the Dougherty County Elections Office are trying to avoid confusion by clearly posting Republican and Democrat ballots.

In the Primary, you can only vote on either the Republican or the Democrat ballot. Elections Supervisor Carolyn Hatcher says, "Also we are reminding people that if they get to the end and they do not see the person they want to vote for do not cast the ballot. Do not press cast ballot. Once that is done it is voted and it is over."

Advanced voting begins Monday--that's open for all people who would like to cast their ballot before the July 20th Primary.

One more thing you need to know--there have been two precinct changes in Dougherty County. Precinct 10 voting used to take place at Sherwood Christian on Old Pretoria Road. That's been moved to Second Mount Zion Church, which is also on Old Pretoria.

Precinct 27 was at Sylvandale Elementary. Now it's at the New Albany Middle School on Cordell Avenue.
