Georgia postpones primaries to June 9 after state of emergency order is extended
Georgia’s primary election set for May 19 will be postponed three weeks to June 9 due to health and safety concerns over coronavirus, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced today.
The move came after Gov. Brian Kemp extended the state’s public health emergency status another month to May 13, a step Raffensperger said was legally necessary before the primary could be delayed. Early voting for the primary now starts May 18. Voter registration will end May 11.
Absentee ballot applications have been sent to every Georgia voter. Requests for mail-in ballots that have already been sent in will still be valid to receive an absentee ballot for the June 9 election. To vote for Dave Roberson via absentee ballot, choose Republican.
