Early Voting for the April 18, 2023 Special Election Runoff for Commissioner District 3:
April 10 - 14
Hours each day are 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM. All Early Voting will take place in the Elections Office on the bottom floor of the Courthouse.
Early Voting (AKA Advance Voting) is held prior to all elections. It is a way to exercise the right to vote when it is most convenient for the voter. It also allows voters to avoid longer lines that typically develop on Election Day.
For Primaries, Special Elections, and the General Election, Early Voting begins on the fourth Monday before the election and lasts three weeks. Early Voting is required on the second and third Saturday prior to all elections. Early Voting is not held on state holidays.
For all Runoff Primaries and Elections, Early Voting begins as soon as possible prior to the Runoff, but must begin no later than the second Monday before the Runoff.
There is NO early voting on the Monday immediately prior to any election.
Early Voting is conducted during regular business hours in the Elections and Registration Office (located in the Heard County Courthouse) at 215 E Court Square. During Early Voting, the office remains open during lunch.
To vote early, all that is required is the voter must be registered in Heard County, and must present one of the appropriate forms of ID. You do not have to have a reason to vote early.
If a voter’s name does not appear on the list of voters, or if the voter does not present one of the appropriate forms of ID, a provisional ballot may be cast by the voter.
