 GA Primary Postponed Until June 9th

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Thursday postponed Georgia’s primary election for three weeks, until June 9, as the coronavirus spreads, poll workers quit and voters worry about getting sick at precincts.

The election must be rescheduled because of the health risk if early voting had begun later this month for the primary, previously scheduled for May 19, Raffensperger said.

“This decision allows our office and county election officials to continue to put in place contingency plans to ensure that voting can be safe,” Raffensperger said. “I certainly realize that every difficulty will not be completely solved by the time in-person voting begins for the June 9 election, but elections must happen in less than ideal circumstances.”
