Early voting begins for Georgia primary

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Early voting begins Monday for Georgia's state primary.

All top statewide officials are up for re-election this year, and voters will be weighing who they would like to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Georgia's 14 congressmen are also running for re-election, and every seat in the Georgia General Assembly will be on the ballot.

The U.S. Senate race is one of the most closely watched in the country as Republicans seek to take control of the chamber away from Democrats. Seven Republicans and four Democrats are running for the Georgia seat, which opened when Sen. Saxby Chambliss announced plans to retire.

Early voting locations can be found on the Secretary of State's website, at http://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov . Early voting continues through May 16. The election will be held May 20.
