CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - The Georgia Primary is quickly approaching, and Monday was the first day to vote early.

The primary on May 22 will include races for governor, U.S. Congress, and other state and local offices. Advance in-person voting lasts for three weeks before the May 22 primary. Early voting is available to all registered voters at polling places designated by each county.

"Of course, every vote is important. Every election is important. It's a civic responsibility for all of us to vote, to make sure that our voice is heard in the election process," said Colin McRae, Chair, Board of Registrars, Chatham County. "So, just because there is not a national presidential election going on doesn't mean that it is not a critical vote for everybody to get out and participate in."

The main office on Eisenhower Drive will offer weekend early voting on Sunday, May 6, and Saturday, May 12. For more information, click here.
