Early voting available Saturday

Posted: Updated:

If you can't make it to the polls for early voting during the week you'll have a chance to cast your ballot on Saturday.

Early voting has been underway for two weeks. Election officials hope the one day of Saturday voting will entice more people to vote.

"They don't have an excuse now to say that they couldn't get off from work to go vote when there's a day you can vote on Saturday," said Poll worker Doris Beall. "And I'm a person that really believes that you should exercise your privilege to vote."

Polls will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Dougherty County's early voting will be at the Riverfront Resource Center, also called the Candy Room on Pine Avenue.

Early voting continues through May 16th. Primary election day is May 20th.
