Saturday voting available in PTC, Tyrone, Fayetteville

Thousands of Fayette County residents have already taken advantage of early voting, and they’re making it even easier today by offering Saturday voting tomorrow at all three early voting locations.

According to elections officials, those looking for the quickest wait time might do well to make the short trip to Tyrone, where Town Hall has so far recorded the smallest numbers of early voters.

Early voters have steadily flocked to the other two voting locations in the county: the Peachtree City Library on the bottom floor and also the Fayette County elections office at the county’s Stonewall government complex in downtown Fayetteville.

All three locations will be open Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for those who are ready to cast their ballots.

Voters are not required to live in any of those towns and thus may cast their in-person ballot at any of the three locations, elections officials have said. If you wait until election day Nov. 6, however, you will have to visit your polling location between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

The last day to vote “early” in person is Friday, Nov. 2, as elections officials need the following Monday to prepare for election day on Tuesday.

To speed up the early voting process this year, elections workers are using a license/ID scanner that allows voters to skip filling out their request for ballot form in lieu of a printout they will sign instead.

Heavy turnout is expected due to the highly contested presidential election.

Fayette voters will also be asked to pick a school board member for Post 2, determine the fate of a proposed continuance to the educational sales tax (ESPLOST) for Fayette County public schools and also vote on a change to the state constitution that would give a new state agency — appointed by the governor, speaker of the house and president of the senate — the power to authorize applications for state funded charter schools.
