Early voting heads into the weekend in Athens

Advanced voting in Athens continues into the weekend, with new early voting sites opening Saturday: besides the Elections Office on Washington Street downtown, voters can cast ballots at the Athens-Clarke County Extension Office in Bogart, the Library on Baxter Street, the Athens-Clarke County Tennis Center, the Miriam Moore Community Center on McKinley Drive, and next week at the Depot in Winterville.

Early voting continues through next Friday in advance of election day on May 24. Today is the last day to apply for an absentee ballot in Athens.

The Athens-Clarke County Board of Elections is holding what it is calling an emergency special session today: it’s underway at 1 o’clock this afternoon.

We are today 11 days away from election day in Athens, with voters casting ballots in races for Mayor, Athens-Clarke County Commission, and Clarke County School Board. They’re also helping settle legislative and congressional contests and voting in US Senate and gubernatorial primaries.
