      Early voting for the July 22nd runoff election ends Friday.

      Those voting early can cast ballots until 5 p.m. Friday at the Government Center downtown. The Dougherty County Elections office is encouraging those who did not get to vote in the May primary election to vote in the runoff along with those who did cast ballots in May.

      For those who voted in May and wish to vote again in the runoff, you must stay with the same political party.

      "Early voting has been a steady flow, daily," Dougherty County Elections Supervisor Ginger Nickerson said. "As of today, we've had over a thousand individuals come through our office during the 14 days we've been open."

      Polls are open Tuesday from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. at all 28 polling locations. Tuesday is the last day absentee ballots can be returned to the elections office.
