Voting is already underway. Chattooga County voters that have applied for absentee ballots for the November 3rd General Election have begun to receive those ballots in the mail.

Chattooga County Registrar Sheena Weaver told WZQZ News over the weekend, “We began mailing ballots on September 15, 2020 for the November General Election.  The State contracted a vendor to aid counties with the initial requests and I was told that our ballots were mailed on September 16, 2020 from the vendor.”

Several ballots that were received via the online portal were mailed locally on Friday afternoon. So far, over 1500 ballots have been requested for the November General Election.

Weaver says that voters may visit to see if a request has been received.
Voter’s who didn’t receive their absentee ballots in the mail last week should receive those ballots this week.  The last day to request an Absentee by Mail ballot is October 30, 2020 but it is better to request early if at all possible to allow plenty of time for the ballot to arrive.
Weaver added, “Our office is open to the public.  Applications and ballots may be handed in at our office.  We do not have a ballot drop box.”
