The Athens-Clarke County Board of Elections will be open for early voting from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Saturday, and three other early voting locations will open next week.

Voting machines will be set up at the Athens-Clarke County Library from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and until 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday; at the Tate Center on campus from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday; and in the basement of City Hall from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. Thursday and Friday.

That’s in addition to early voting at the Board of Elections office, 155 E. Washington St., from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. weekdays through Nov. 2.

If you prefer to vote absentee—because you’ll be out of town, want a paper record, don’t trust the voting machines or for any other reason—the last day to request a ballot is Friday, Nov. 2. Ballots must be returned to the BOE by 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6.
