Early voting for three elections starts on Monday, February 22, in Henry County. Two of the elections will take place on March 16, but the third is scheduled for March 9. This complicates the early voting schedule.

The three elections include the following:

  • Countywide – Education SPLOST VI ballot question, March 16.
  • Locust Grove – city council special election, March 16.
  • House District 90 – special runoff, March 9.

In particular, note the house district 90 election falls on Tuesday, March 9. This is a runoff election following the special primary in February. The house district represents part of Stockbridge, Union Grove and Woodland. Candidates that advanced to the runoff were Stan Watson and Angela Moore.

The other two elections fall on Tuesday, March 16. The education SPLOST referendum is countywide. Any registered voter in Henry County can participate. In contrast, the Locust Grove special election is limited to voters inside city limits. Candidates for the city council are Vernon Ashe and James Vincent Williams.

Early Voting Schedule

Early voters for the education SPLOST election may use any of the early voting locations. Voters who also fall within house district 90 or the city of Locust Grove must use specific locations in order to participate in both E-SPLOST and the second election. Finally, early voting for HD 90 closes one week earlier than the other elections because of its Election Day.

Dates and times marked with a pound sign# are eligible for house district 90 voters. Dates and times marked with an asterisk* are eligible for city of Locust Grove voters. All dates and times are eligible for E-SPLOST voters.
