Voters in Athens-Clarke County will head to the polls for federal, state and local primaries and elections on June 9.
The elections were postponed from May 19 due to the extension of Georgia’s public health state of emergency until May 13. If these elections were held May 19 as originally planned, the extension would include almost every day of in-person voting, said Brad Raffensperger, Georgia secretary of state, in an April 9 press release.
The winners of the U.S. House of Representatives and Georgia General Assembly primaries will face off in the Nov. 3 general election.
The presidential primary was originally scheduled for March 24 then postponed to May 19.
