Early voting in Forsyth County for Georgia’s March 6 presidential preference primary has been slow and steady.

According to Barbara Luth, Forsyth’s elections supervisor, about 900 people had cast ballots as of early this week.

"We’ve been doing pretty good," Luth said. "A lot of people don’t know it’s coming. They don’t know what the election is for.

"But a lot of people are coming out because of the alcohol sales … there’s some interest brewing there."

All three ballot choices — Republican, Democratic and non-partisan — also have at least one alcohol sales question, asking voters if they’d like to grant stores in Forsyth County the ability to sell alcoholic beverages on Sundays.

Residents of the city of Cumming will have a second question asking if city vendors can sell on Sundays.

Those requesting a party ballot do not need to vote in the same party during the July primary or November election.

Early voting runs through this week.

During that time, voters can go to the elections office in the Forsyth County Administration Building between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays to cast a ballot.

From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, voters have the chance to cast a ballot, making it easier for those with work week commitments.
