Early voting for the July 22 runoff election begins Monday.

Registered Coweta County voters can cast ballots at the Coweta Voter Registration Office, located at 22 East Broad St. in downtown Newnan.

Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. There will be one day of Saturday voting. The office will be open Saturday, July 12 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

July 18 will be the last day of early voting.

You can also vote by email with a paper absentee ballot.

There aren’t many races on the runoff ballot.

For the Republican primary, there is a runoff between Jack Kingston and David Purdue for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Saxby Chambliss.

There are runoffs in both the Republican and Democratic primary for state school superintendent.

On the Republican side, candidates are Mike Buck and Richard Woods. Democratic candidates are Alisha Thomas Morgan and Valarie D. Wilson.

The winners of those races will advance to the Nov. 4 general election.

The runoff is considered an extension of the primary election, so if you voted a Republican ballot in the primary, you can’t switch and vote Democrat in the runoff, and vice versa.

If you didn’t vote in the primary, or if you chose a nonpartisan ballot, you can pick either a Republican or Democratic ballot in the runoff.

For more information or to request an absentee ballot, visit the Georgia Secretary of State’s website at www.sos.ga.gov or call the voter registration office at 770-254-2615.
