THOMASVILLE —  Early voting begins Monday for the July 22 primary election runoff.

Early voting continues until 5 p.m., Friday, July 18.

“All the precincts will be open in Thomas County on July 22,” said Walter Mays, Thomas County elections supervisor.

Early ballots may be cast at the elections office at the Thomas County Judicial Center, 325 N. Madison St., between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Thomas County has 24,696 registered voters.

“It’s an important election for sure,” Mays said.

The only local race on the ballot is between C. Ellis Black and John P. Page, Republican candidates seeking the state Senate District 8 seat.

J.H. “Jack” Kingston and David Perdue, both Republicans, are in a contest for a Georgia U.S. Senate seat.

Republicans Michael L. “Mike” Buck and Richard L. Woods, also Republicans, are seeking the state school superintendent post.

On the Democratic ballot, Alisha Thomas Morgan and Valarie D. Wilson are vying for state school superintendent.

Mays said the runoff will cost Thomas County taxpayers $25,000 to $30,000.
