A final reminder - go to the polls and vote today

Today is election day throughout Georgia. Voting takes place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the 2010 Republican and Democratic parties primaries. We are not going to tell you who to vote for today. However, we do strongly encourage all registered voters who have not already cast their ballots in early voting to go to your polling place today and vote. Remember voters need to have a photo identification to show when they arrive at their polling places. Voters also will have to choose either a Republican ballot or a Democratic ballot. You can't vote in both parties' races. Voter turnout is expected to be light. Long lines are unlikely, however turnout is usually heaviest from about 7-8 a.m., around lunchtime and from 5-7 p.m. during the final hours of voting. The best time to quickly cast ballots is likely to be during the mid-morning and mid-afternoon hours.
Important races are to be decided in this election. Headlining the ballots of each political party are the races for governor and other statewide offices. There are only two contested local races in Coweta County. Those are the Coweta Commission District 2 and District 3 races on the Republican ballots. There were no Democrats qualifying in those two races. Again we encourage registered voters to cast ballots today. You have a right to vote and also a responsibility to vote.
