With just three days left of early voting before the May 24th Board of Elections, 2,199 people have early voted in Bulloch County.


Results as of 9AM on May 18, 2016:

In 2014, just over 6,000 people turned out to vote in the May primary – over 1,600 of which were from advance voting. With 33% of the 2014 numbers having already turned out, it appears predictions of higher turnout because of the contentious Sheriff’s race may be correct.

Election Day is Tuesday, May 24th. Bulloch County residents can vote early at the Bulloch County Annex in Statesboro.  A photo ID is required.
