Vote 2021

 

ROCKDALE COUNTY, GA—More than 1,000 Rockdale County voters have cast ballots since early voting began on Monday, May 2 , elections officials reported.

As of Wednesday, May 4, a total of 1,294 residents had cast ballots, Rockdale Supervisor of Elections Cynthia Willingham reported.  On the first day of the early voting period, 621 ballots were reported as cast, Willingham said.

“We have a long way to go, but I think what we’ve seen is that the numbers are growing. I think people are coming out because they want to have a voice in who they choose to represent them at the local and state levels,” Willingham said. “There also are several questions and issues on the ballots that people are concerned about.”

The early voting period runs May 2-20 for the May 24 General Primary and non-partisan elections
