DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Early voting in Georgia begins Monday.

An election official said the number one concern from voters during a primary election is choosing a party ballot.

"I think the main concern is always that you have to choose a party. But, that is the primary election. It is required that you choose a party," said Ginger Nickerson, the Dougherty County Elections Supervisor.

Georgia law dictates you must chose a party for the primary. In Georgia, voters can choose from a Republican ballot, a Democratic ballot, or a Non-Partisan ballot.

The Non-Partisan ballot only lists the non-partisan races.

"You can review your sample ballots (before you vote). You can go online to the My Voter Page website and look at those ballots, or you are more than welcome to review them in the office before you cast your ballot or even at the polling place," said Nickerson.

Early voting is a great option for busy voters, who can't make it to their polling place on Tuesday, May 22.

Nickerson said absentee ballot has been a popular choice this political season. In Dougherty County, Nickerson said more than 1,000 absentee ballots have been mailed out.

"We want to make sure our voters remember to take advantage of all the tools that we have. That is absentee, early voting and election day. Our main goal is always to get you to vote!"

Statewide, early voting starts Monday, April 30 until Friday, May 18.
