Local officials are preparing a longer ballot for May’s general primary election.

 

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger postponed the March 24 Presidential Preference Primary over concerns about the coronavirus. The decision halted early voting across the state.

 

Baldwin County Elections Superintendent Todd Blackwell said ballots already cast in the Presidential Primary and local ESPLOST referendum will be combined with results from the general primary scheduled for May 19th.
