Primary election registration time is up

June 16, 2008

Albany--  Monday afternoon was the deadline to register to vote for the July 15th primary election.

Based on the number of potential new voters, Dougherty County Election officials expect good turnout next month and in November.

About 46,000 people are registered to vote in Dougherty County right now. They'll be able to vote in important races including those for Sheriff, District Attorney and school board seats. Election Supervisor Carolyn Hatcher is impressed with the growing number of registered voters.

"That's quite a bit for Dougherty County and we always have a good turnout and so we expect those people to get out and vote," said Hatcher.

Those who mailed in registration forms are o.k. as long as those forms were post marked by the 16th. Voters still have until October to register for the general election in November.
