Those choosing a Republican ballot have arguably the two biggest primary races to decide: the GOP gubernatorial and senatorial candidates.
Former U.S. Senator David Perdue is challenging current Governor Brian Kemp for the Republican nomination to take on presumptive Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams in the November General Election. Other Republican nominees on the ballot include Catherine Davis, Kandiss Taylor and Tom Williams.
Several Republicans are squaring off with one another for the GOP nomination to try and unseat Senator Rev. Raphael Warnock this November. UGA football legend Herschel Walker and Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black are among those vying for the nomination. Other Republicans appearing on the ballot include former State Representative Josh Clark, Kelvin King, Jon McColumn and Latham Saddler.
Another race to watch is for the Secretary of State’s Office. Incumbent Brad Raffensperger is running on the GOP ticket against U.S. Rep. Jody Hice, former Alpharetta Mayor David Belle Isle and former probate and magistrate judge T.J. Hudson, who have all criticized Raffensperger’s handling of the 2020 election.
Democratic candidates include State Rep. Bee Nguyen; Floyd Griffin, a state senator and former mayor of the city of Milledgeville; Michael Owens, former Cobb County Democratic Party chairman; John Eaves, former Fulton County Commission chairman; and Dee Dawkins-Haigler, a former state representative from DeKalb County.
On Election Day, you must vote at your designated polling place. Polling places are open on Election Day from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. If you are in line by 7:00 p.m., you are allowed to cast your ballot.
If you plan on voting in-person, you will be required to show a form of ID. If you don’t have an ID or forget to bring it with you, you’ll be given a provisional ballot and will have a short grace period to provide the County Board of Registrars with an ID so your vote can be counted.
If you require special assistance to vote or to access your polling place, contact your County Board of Registrar’s Office for help.
