Advance voting begins in city

POSTED: October 16, 2013 4:00 a.m.

Advance voting is under way for the Nov. 5 General Election.

The polls will be open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday through Nov. 1 at the Dawson County Board of Elections office, 96 Academy Ave.

"There is only one early voting location and day of election voting location for the city and that is here at our office," said Chief Registrar Glenda Ferguson.

On Election Day, the polls will be open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m.

The ballot features two seats on the Dawsonville City Council.

Incumbents Angie Smith and Mike Sosebee are seeking re-election. They are joined in the contest by former councilman Frank Craft.

The top two vote-getters will be elected to four-year terms on the four-member panel that governs the city.

Also on the ballot is a referendum to allow restaurants to sell alcohol by the drink on Sunday.

Registered voters must present one form of photo identification before voting.

Those include: Georgia driver's license; valid state or federal government-issued photo ID; U.S. passport; U.S. military photo ID; tribal photo ID; or an employee photo ID from any federal, state or local government.

The Dawson County web site advises voters who have questions to visit the "My Voter Page" at http://sos.georgia.gov/elections/ to find polling places, maps and more information.

For more information, call the elections office at (706) 344-3640.
