The City of Sylvester election for District 1 and 2 will be on the same day as the County election for the House Representative Seat 152 BUT IT WILL NOT BE ON THE SAME BALLOT! According to OCGA 21-2-540(b) a special election held separate and apart from the General election MUST have everything separate. That includes~ machines, workers, ballots, etc.
So, if you are in District 1(D1) or District 2(D2) in the city…you will vote once for this. Then you will fill out another voter certificate and vote on another machine for the House Rep seat.
If your precinct is the Board of Education (Precinct 2) and you fall under one of the city districts…you vote for the House Rep seat (county) there. To vote in the election for D1 or D2 you must go to the Henry Hall Woolard Community Center (Precinct 1).
This also applies to the Absentee Ballots and Applications. You must fill out two applications if you want to vote in both elections. Then you will receive two ballots. If you only want to vote in one election…write at the top of the application “County” or “City”.
We understand that this can be confusing so if you have any questions please call our office @ 229-776-8208. We highly recommend those voters for precinct 2 to take advantage of Early voting so they only have to vote in ONE Place. Anyone (who is a legally registered voter of course) from Any precinct can vote during Early Voting!
*MONDAY IS THE LAST DAY TO REGISTER OR MAKE ANY CHANGES
*EARLY VOTING ~ 10/14/2019 – 11/1/2019 AND SAT 10/26/2019 9AM-4PM
