Early voting has begun

TIFTON — Early voting is now underway in Tift County, and some candidates and their supporters took to the streets Monday morning, reminding motorists to vote by holding up political signs at the corner of Fourth Street and Tift Avenue.

Early voting started Monday and will continue through May 16 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday at the old gym on the corner of Fourth Street and Chesnutt Avenue. Voters will also have a chance to vote Saturday, May 10, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Elections Supervisor Sandi Fallin said there will be no voting May 19, because they will be preparing for Election Day, May 20 — all polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. She advised for voters to call 229-386-7915 to request an absentee ballot.

Fallin told The Tifton Gazette that 52 people had voted, as of early Monday afternoon. She said when coming to vote, citizens need to look at the sample ballot before casting their vote to make sure they're marking the correct ballot.

To contact reporter Latasha Ford, call 382-4321.
