Early voting for House District 127 begins

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Early voting for the Dec. 3 Georgia House District 127 special election runoff between Brian Prince and Diane Evans starts Monday.

Registered voters can cast runoff ballots early for any reason Monday through Friday and Nov. 25 through Nov. 27 at their county elections office. House District 127 includes precincts in Jefferson and Richmond counties.

Voting by mail also begins Monday. Saturday voting will not be available.

Voters can cast their ballot in the runoff regardless of whether they voted in the Nov. 5 special election.

Prince, who is retired from the military, and Evans, a retired educator, were the top two finishers in the Nov. 5 special election.

Prince won about 44 percent of the vote, while Evans won about 29 percent. The third candidate, Dianne Murphy, won about 25 percent. None of the candidates won the required 50 percent to win.

The winner of the runoff will fill the seat left vacant after the passing of Rep. Quincy Murphy, D-Augusta.

Voters need to provide one of the six acceptable forms of ID to vote, but do not need to provide a reason for voting early.
