Early voting starts at Candy Room

A worker for the Lorenzo Heard campaign talks to a prospective voter on the sidewalk in front of the Albany Herald parking lot on Pine Avenue Monday afternoon as county workers measure 150 feet from the candy room. Heard is running a write-in campaign against Lane Price, who beat incumbent Anita Williams-Brown in the July primary.

ALBANY, Ga. — Another location is open for early voting downtown.

The Candy Room on the 100 block of Pine Avenue will be open for early voting during the next two weeks. The new location is added to the voting site at the Government Center location at 222 Pine Avenue.

Registered voters may cast ballots from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mondays-Fridays until Nov. 2, and this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There will be no early voting on Nov. 5, and all precincts countywide will open at 7 a.m. on Nov. 6.

It didn't take long for some local candidates in contested elections to put workers in place strategic to the new location.

A woman shouting "Heard is the word" — a reference to the write-in campaign of the Rev. Lorenzo Heard, who is running against Lane Price for the Dougherty County School Board at-large seat — began pacing along the sidewalk near the Candy Room Monday morning, handing out literature that instructs prospective voters who to vote for in the upcoming races.

Price beat incumbent Anita Williams-Brown in the July Democratic Primary.

Gotta make sure they get those early votes in, so they can go back and vote again using their fake id's.

See they dont really care about the Children and what is best and who is the most qualified the are voting write in strictly race based. Heard if wad so interested in the children why didnt he register as a Democrat for the original vote then when he let that time period pass if he was still so interested in the welfare of the children why did he literally wait to the last couple hours to try to run as an Independent. Even then it was flawed he did not have the signatures together did not understand the requird forms spoarently then he sent someone other than himself with an emailed copy. After all of that he is now trying to run a write in campain. Gee he seems to be going about this the back aspirin way when it would have been so easy to have just run initially if he had just bothered to comply with a badic aoplication as the democrat that he is. Puzzling how he could supposefly care but not care all at same time.

I think early voting is ridiculous, to much fraud is in the voting system now and this just adds to it. As for Heard if he was any kind of Pastor, Rev. etc. he should be ashamed of himself and so should his parishioners. Is it really that important to be deceitful. You need to read your Bible more and pray for yourself.....Voting just to make sure you don't win.
