Just got a call informing me that I’m still mis-informed about early voting.
There’s an old Georgia statute that requires counties to send absentee ballots upon request within 2 business days of receiving the ballots.
All counties should have received their ballots by today. Thus, by Tuesday, all counties should be mailing out absentee ballots.
Update your campaign plans accordingly.
Updated to add:
Well not all counties – a helpful tipster sent us this:
Some county Boards of Elections have received their ballots earlier this week and are legally required to mail or issue the ballots to any individual who has requested them. Thus, over the next couple weeks, as each county throughout the state receives their ballots, absentee and early voting will begin for the July 20th Primary.
