TIFTON — In-person voting for the Mar. 24 presidential preference primary in-person voting has been suspended, according to a release from Leila Dollison, Tifton-Tift County Board of Elections and Registration office election supervisor.
Dollison said the presidential preference election will be combined with the May 19 primary.
Any votes already cast either in-person or by mail will be counted on May 19, in conjunction with the primary results. Anyone who did not vote in the Mar. 24 election, the presidential candidates will be on the May 19 ballot.
Dollison said that voters may still vote by mail for the Mar. 24 primary through Friday, Mar. 20.
“Vote by mail is available for everyone,” Dollison said in the release. “You don’t need a reason to request a mail ballot application. Simply call the elections office to have an application sent to you. The ballot is mailed within 24 hours of receiving the application back in our office.
“Elderly, disabled, military and military dependents overseas are eligible to receive all ballots for all elections for the remainder of the calendar year after submitting an application.”
