For the first time, Dawson County voters will be able to cast ballots for an election on a Saturday.
Thanks to a new state law, polls will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday at the Dawson County Board of Elections office, 96 Academy Ave.
The offering is part of early voting, which began last week, for Georgia's March 6 presidential preference primary.
A referendum on Sunday package alcohol sales in Dawson County is also on the March 6 ballot.
The ballot will also ask voters whether restaurants in unincorporated areas of the county should be able to serve distilled spirits on Sunday.
Early and advanced voting will continue from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday through March 2.
There will be no voting on March 5, ahead of Election Day.
Registered voters must present a form of photo identification before voting. Those include: a 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 www.sos.ga.gov/mvp to find polling places, maps and more information.
