Turnout light for early voting

Early voters turned out at a little more than a trickle last week as the May 22 general primary looms. The elections board office served 98 voters the first week. Of those, 71 cast Republican ballots while 26 voted Democratic. One voted non-partisan. An additional 64 absentee ballots were cast, almost evenly split among Republicans and Democrats. Registered voters may cast ballots from 8 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. – 5 p.m. daily through Friday, May 18. Additionally, ballots may be cast this Saturday, May 12 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. There are no contested Lamar County races on the primary ballot but there are battles for the state house and senate, congress, governor, lieutenant governor and others. For more information, contact the elections office at 770-358-5235.
