More than 20,000 people could be going to Columbus' 27 voting precincts Tuesday, as elections director Nancy Boren projects a turnout of around 30,000, and 7,788 have voted early, either in person or by mail-in absentee ballot.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. These precincts have changed since Columbus' last elections:

• Residents who voted at Victory Independent Baptist Church, 3150 N. Lumpkin Road, now vote at the Cusseta Road Church of Christ, 3013 Cusseta Road.

• Those in the Hardaway-Clubview precinct who voted at the Columbus Public Library now vote at St. Paul United Methodist Church, 2101 Wildwood Ave.

Voters must choose a Democratic, Republican or nonpartisan ballot.

Nonpartisan races also are on party ballots.

Individual voters can review their ballot choices online at, the Georgia Secretary of State's "MyVoter" page. It also shows which voting precinct to go to.

The sample ballots are in PDF format, so they can be downloaded onto a computer desktop, printed or emailed.
