DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - The May 22 Primary Elections are quickly approaching.

The deadline to register to vote in Georgia's Primary Election is Tuesday, April 24.

The Primary Election will feature Republican and Democratic races for Congress, governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, the General Assembly and local government offices.

Dougherty County's Elections Supervisor Ginger Nickerson said it's important for residents to vote if they want their voices heard.

"Individuals should get out and express themselves, choose the individual that best represents their values and their views and vote for that individual to get them into office to support the things they want supported," said Nickerson.

If you want to register to vote or if you need to update your address, go to Georgia's My Voter Page or the GA SOS app for Android and Apple cellphones. In addition, voter registration applications can be submitted by mail.
