Advance voting for runoff begins in Richmond County
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - In-person advance voting is underway for the Aug. 11 primary runoff election in Richmond County.
Here’s the schedule of locations:
Augusta Municipal Building Beazley Room, 535 Telfair St., Augusta: 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 20-24 and July 27-31, and 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 3-7. A total of 45 voters took advantage of the opening day of in-person voting on Monday.

For in person voting, a photo ID is required, and voters are asked to wear a clean face covering. Voting in person will likely take longer due to social distancing and the limited number of staff and voters allowed in each facility. Officials encourage all voters to vote by mail. If you choose to cancel your mail in absentee ballot, bring it with you to the polls.
Columbia County, meanwhile, is not having a countywide runoff, according to Elections Director Nancy Gay. The runoff there involves only one polling site, Damascus Baptist Church, she said. It’s the race for state representative for Georgia District 33, and the candidates are Rob Leverett and Tripp Strickland.
