MOULTRIE, Ga. — The City of Moultrie’s election day, Nov. 5, may be a month away, but early voting is just around the corner.
Early voting begins Monday and runs through Nov. 1 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. It’ll be in city hall’s conference room located on the second floor.
All citizens can vote early so long as they’ve registered to vote and have a valid form of identification.
Valid IDs include an employee ID from any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. Government, Georgia, or any county, municipality, board, authority or other entity of the state; a Georgia driver’s license (valid or expired); and a valid Georgia state ID, military photo ID, passport ID and/or tribal photo ID
According to Tina Coleman, election superintendent, early voting is a contingency plan for voters.
“If they (voters) can’t come on election day, then they come during those three weeks and vote,” she said. “It’ll be the same principles as election day, it just gives voters the opportunity to vote early.”
All voters can vote only once. Early votes will be counted on the same day as election day votes.
Candidates are running for three city council seats:
• District 1, Post 1 – Lisa Clarke Hill (incumbent) and Eddie Warren.
• District 2, Post 3 – Angela Castellow (incumbent) and Cole Posey.
• District 2, Post 4 – Cecil Barber (incumbent) and Rachel Weeks.
The Moultrie city hall is located at 21 First Ave. N.E.
