Ga. voters go to the polls today for presidential primary

Voters will go to the polls at regular polling places across Pickens County today, mainly to select a GOP challenger for the presidency.

The only races Pickens voters will see are the presidential primaries for both parties on the March 6th Super Tuesday.

Voters need a photo identification to cast a ballot. Election Supervisor Julianne Roberts said almost everyone uses a driver’s license, but any government issued photo identification will work.

Roberts said the only item on the ballot is the presidential primary. There are ballots for both Democrats and Republicans, but President Barack Obama is the only candidate on the Democrat side.

Roberts said in Georgia, voters may cast a ballot in either parties’ primary, regardless of how the voter is registered with a party or has voted before.

The Republican ballots shows nine candidates, some are virtually unknown and some have already conceded the race.

The Republicans who appear on the ballot are Michelle Bachman, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Gary Johnson, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Buddy Roemer, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum.

In this primary there will be no runoff.
