In-person early voting for the July 22 primary runoff is set to begin Monday, June 30 and will continue through Friday, July 18. There are several key races still up in the air, and the winners of this runoff move on to the general election in November.

Where and when can you vote early?
Rockdale County Board of Elections and Voter Registration Office

July 16-18, 8 a.m. - 7 p.m.

What do I need to bring?
Any registered Georgia voter can vote early. When going to cast your ballot, make sure you bring photo identification, which can be a Georgia driver's license, a state-issued voter ID card, a valid U.S. passport or a valid U.S. military ID card.

The candidates:

Democrat race:
- State Superintendent: Alisha Thomas Morgan and Valerie Wilson

Republican races:
- U.S. Senate: Former congressman Jack Kingston and former Dollar General CEO David Perdue
- State Superintendent: Mike Buck and Richard Woods

Georgia's open primary system means voters participating in the May primary had to choose one party's primary or a nonpartisan primary, regardless of political affiliation. However, those voters must now vote in that same party's upcoming runoff. Someone who voted in the Democratic primary cannot vote in the Republican runoff, and someone who voted in the Republican primary cannot vote in the Democratic runoff.

Note: Registered voters who did not vote in the May primary can still vote in either party's July runoff.
