VALDOSTA – On Tuesday, the first push of absentee ballots were mailed out to Georgia voters for the upcoming election.

The Lowndes County Board of Elections says that was to local military, and has another load ready to send out before the end of the day.

They say, as of now, they have 1,200 ballots to send and counting.

Residents can still request absentee ballots until the week before the election.

The election’s office says there’s no days off, while preparing for their biggest year yet.

“What I anticipate seeing is a larger turnout then we’ve ever seen before, including early voting,” says Deb Cox, with Lowndes County Board of Elections. “We had 22,000 eight years ago, 26,000 four years ago, and we expect about 30,000 of early voting this time.”

She says the ballots already requested will be sent out by Saturday.

Cox also says to expect two ballots in the mail.

One will be a general election ballot and the other will be a special election question.

A note with instructions will be included in the mail.
