Early voting for Ga. primary election ends today

ATLANTA — Georgia voters only have a few more hours to cast an early ballot ahead of Tuesday's primary election.

Early voting in Georgia opened July 9 and voters were allowed for the first time to vote on a Saturday under new election rules approved earlier this year by the Legislature.

Up for election are lawmakers in the General Assembly, members of the U.S. House of Representatives, state utility regulators, prosecutors and judges. Voters will also decide whether to approve a penny sales tax to fund regional transportation projects.
