Monday is the last day to register for state and local runoffs in Georgia.

Voters can check to see if they are registered to vote by visiting the Georgia Secretary of State My Voter Page.

The General Primary Runoff elections for local and state offices include candidates for races, such as U.S. House of Representatives, State House, and State Senate in metro Atlanta. The runoff is scheduled for Aug. 11.

U.S. House of Representative candidates on the ballot for Georgians are District 1 Democrats Joyce Marie Griggs and Lisa M. Ring; District 9 Republicans Andrew Clyde and Matt Gurtler and Democrats Devin Pandy and Brooke Sisken; and District 14 Republicans John Cowan and Marjorie T. Greene. More information about local candidates heading to a runoff is on WABE’s 2020 Election candidate page.

Early voting locations will open across counties in metro Atlanta on July 20.

Voters can cast their ballot at any of Cobb County‘s six precincts, but they won’t be open on Saturdays, Sundays, Aug. 8 or Aug. 10.

In DeKalb County, three locations will open on July 20 and two others on July 27. The precincts include the Voter Registration and Elections Office on Memorial Drive, The Gallery at South DeKalb Mall, and the Dunwoody Library.

Fulton County’s 20 early voting locations for the runoff will be open July 20 to Aug. 7 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., with Saturday voting on July 25 and Aug. 1 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

There are five early voting precincts in Gwinnett County, from Lenora Park Gym to the George Pierce Park Community Recreation Center.

Correction: A previous version said that Brenda L. Romero and Carolyn Bourdeaux are headed to a runoff, but Bourdeaux won the primary election in June.
