Are you eligible to vote?
While many Newton County voters are eligible to vote in Tuesday’s runoff election, some are not.
Voters should check their voter registration card or go to the Georgia Secretary of State’s My Voter Page, mvp.sos.state.ga.us, to see if they fall within the district of either of the two races: District 5 Board of Commissioners and District 113 state representative.
In addition, voters who voted in one party’s primary cannot vote in the other party’s runoff election. So, for example, if a District 5 resident voted in the Democratic primary, he cannot then vote in the Republican runoff.
Those who voted nonpartisan or did not vote at all can vote in whichever party’s primary they choose.
