Sunday voting OK'ed for Lowndes

The Lowndes County Board of Elections announced Wednesday that Lowndes County will be the second county in Georgia to implement Sunday Voting.

Lowndes County Commissioners approved the proposal Tuesday. DeKalb County is the only other county in the state that currently allows Sunday voting.

The Lowndes County Board of elections believes allowing voters to vote on Sunday will help increase voter turn out. "Our job here is to serve the citizens. So, we believe this extra day will help them more," said Davontae Battle, administrative clerk with the Lowndes County Board of Elections. "We're hopeful of a larger turnout because of this added day."

Sunday voting will occur as part of the Early Voting Cycle and will be available on Sunday, October 26, 2014, from 12 noon to 5 p.m., in the Elections Office at 2808 N Oak St., in Valdosta.

The rest of the Early Voting Schedule is as follows:

Mon Oct 13th – Fri 17th, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Mon Oct 20th - Fri 24th, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Saturday, Oct 25th , 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Sunday, Oct 26th, 12 noon – 5 p.m.

Mon Oct 27th – Fri Oct 31st, 7a.m. – 7 p.m.

If you have any questions call the Elections Office at 229-671-2850.
