Albany -- Dougherty County voters will soon be able to vote by absentee ballot. The ballots arrived from the printer in North Carolina Monday morning. Volunteers started immediately to send the absentee ballots to the 300 people who have already requested them by mail.
Elections supervisor Carolyn Hatcher said the ballots were delayed because of the late primary election and run-offs, and vote recounts. Hatcher said "People are getting a little anxious, but we still have plenty of time. As long as they have the ballot back in the office by election day, November Fifth, they're O.K. And if someone is disabled they can have the ballot brought back down by a relative."
Voters can fill out a written application to receive an absentee ballot by mail. Or you can vote at the Governmental Center in Room 430 from 8:30 until 4:30 Monday through Friday.
