Early voting

In this June file photo, voters wait in the rain for early voting outside the Cobb Elections and Registration main office on Whitlock Avenue in Marietta.

Early voting for the Aug. 11 primary and nonpartisan runoff begins Monday at the main office of Cobb County Elections and Voter Registration.

Four other polling locations, the North Cobb Senior Center, the West Cobb Senior Center, the Riverside EpiCenter and the East Cobb Government Service Center, will be open for advance voting Aug. 3-7.

Cobb County runoffs to be decided in the Aug. 11 election include county commission primaries for Cobb Commission District 4, to succeed Lisa Cupid, and Cobb Commission District 2, to succeed Bob Ott, and nonpartisan judicial elections: a Superior Court race between Jason Marbutt and Greg Shenton for retiring Judge Steve Schuster’s seat and a state court race between Trina Griffiths and Diana Simmons to succeed retiring Judge Toby Prodgers.

According to the local elections office, voters should expect lines and should practice social distancing when voting in-person. Those who want to vote by mail can use an absentee application on the elections office website or call 770-528-2581.
