Early voting numbers top 20,000 in Columbia County after two week and early voting

Voters cast their ballots early at the Patriot’s Park precinct. More than 1,000 voters turned out early at the precinct Saturday to cast ballots early. This is the last week to vote early before the Nov. 8 general election.

More than 2,300 people cast early ballots Tuesday sending the number of people to cast ballots early in Columbia County to more than 25,000.

 

According to Columbia County Elections Director Nancy Gay, more than 20,000 voters have cast ballots early in person ahead of the Nov. 8 General Election, in what Gay said was a record-setting year of early voting for the county.

A total of 3,633 absentee ballots were issued by mail to date and of those 2,383 ballots have been received back, Gay said, bringing Columbia County totals to 25,800 voters casting ballots early.

Saturday voting also opened up two more precinctsfor voters in the final days of early voting.

According to poll workers at Patriot's Park in Grovetown, more than 1,000 voters turned out to cast ballots on Saturday. The precinct, in addition to Stevens Creek Community Church, will remain open through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The two additional precincts will be open along with the new early voting precinct in Evans, which replaced the Columbia County Board of Elections office as a site for early voting this year to accommodate more than 100,000 residents registered to vote.

The new early voting precinct is located at 610 Ronald Reagan Blvd., building G3, in Evans in the old Rhodes-Murphy building, next to Zaxby's. The new precinct will be open for early voting only, which concludes Friday.

The last day to vote early at all three precincts in Columbia County is Friday at 5 p.m. No voting will be held Monday and 46 precincts, including Stevens Creek Community Church and Patriot's Park, will open throughout the county on Election Day, Nov. 8, which is the last day to vote in the General Election.

Voters who did not cast an early/absentee ballot will need to vote at assigned voting precincts on Election Day.
