How to vote in Statesboro election

Shay Parker, Correspondent

Statesboro voting opened for the mayoral elections and a referendum deciding if liquor stores should be allowed within city limits Tuesday morning.

Statesboro-registered voters can vote for mayor and on the liquor store referendum which will decide if alcohol sales in Statesboro stores can expand to include liquor. Without this vote passing, it will take two years to reappear on the ballot.

To cast your vote as a Statesboro resident, you must go to the city precinct, on 150 Williams Rd in the William James Educational Complex lunchroom, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. November 2.

A photo ID is required to vote. This can be a drivers license, any federal or state employment ID including military, voter ID, passport ID, or tribal photo ID.

The deadline to request an absentee ballot was October 22, as the time limit for these has been shortened; however if you already got yours, you can just swing by and drop your completed ballot anytime while the polls are open Tuesday.
