Georgia voters listen up. A federal judge has ordered the earliest ever federal primary for 2014.
Primaries usually held in late July will now be conducted on May 20. U.S. Rep. John Barrow said the change will help voters.
"Personally, I think we ought to have elections at a times when the most number of voters can vote and in Georgia for a long time now, we've been pushing the primaries in the times of year when it's hard for most folks to vote."
The ruling is the result of a federal lawsuit on behalf of military personnel and others overseas who were not afforded at least 45 days to process absentee ballots for primary runoffs. Now those runoffs will be held July 22.
