Are you el­i­gi­ble to vote?

The Covington News - - News -

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,, 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.
