Clar­i­fi­ca­tion

The Covington News - - OPINION -

In the ed­i­to­rial that ran in the Our Thoughts sec­tion of Wed­nes­day, July 2 edi­tion of The Cov­ing­ton News en­ti­tled “Runoff” there is a clar­i­fi­ca­tion con­cern­ing who can vote for which elec­tion.

You do not to be a reg­is­tered Repub­li­can to vote in the Repub­li­can races, nor reg­is­tered Demo­crat to vote in the Demo­crat races. In Ge­or­gia a voter can vote for ei­ther party in the pri­mary elec­tion, re­gard­less of their reg­is­tered party.

How­ever, if you voted in the pri­mary, you must vote for that same party in a runoff elec­tion, ac­cord­ing to the New­ton County Board of Elec­tions.

The Cov­ing­ton News strives to have its news re­ports be fair and ac­cu­rate. It is our pol­icy to promptly cor­rect or clar­ify all fac­tual mis­takes. If you find an er­ror, please re­port it to us by call­ing (770) 787-6397.
