State investigation continues into May 22 voting: The Secretary of State’s Office reports that the investigation is “ongoing and continuing” into concerns about some wrong ballots were handled in the advance voting and day-of voting in the primary. At issue: Some city of Rome  ballots had Floyd County School Board races on them. The issue was discovered early in advance voting but the decision was made locally to continue the early and election day vote. (None of the county school  board members had opposition anyway).”

Advance voting starts July 2 for primary runoff — and what to know: Advance voting begins July 2 for the July 24 primary runoff. The question we’re hearing: Can I vote in either party’s runoff?

No: If you voted Republican on May 22, you must vote GOP in this next round. There are three statewide races in that one.  The same as Democrat; you have to vote in the party you selection on May 22. There is one statewide race for Democrats.

Yes: If you missed the vote on May 22, you can still vote in the primary runoff and for either ballot you like — Democrat or Republican.
