Ballot questions await many voters Tuesday

Ballot questions await many voters Tuesday

If you vote in Georgia's state primary on Tuesday, you'll do more than choose among candidates.

You'll probably also be looking at some ballot questions, on topics ranging from SPLOSTs to Sunday alcohol sales to Georgia's minimum wage and its stand-your-ground law.

But all that will depend on where you live and which party primary you vote in.

And some of those questions are binding votes, and others are just straw polls to measure public opinion.

It is that time of year again, the time of the year when Dublin is filled with visitors to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and the end of the legislative session is near. The pace is continuing to move quickly as we completed the 38th day of the legislative session on Thursday, March 13th.  The 40th day, also referred to as Sine Die, will be on Thursday, March 20th, until then we will continue to pass legislation and work on the balanced budget late into the night.

The Capitol halls are full of a sense of urgency as we continue to pass legislation as we prepare for Day 30, better known as Crossover Day- the last day a bill can pass to the opposite chamber. With Crossover Day being set for Monday, March 3, we must pass all bills to the House of Representatives before the midnight deadline.  If any bill does not receive a passing vote in its original chamber, then it cannot move on in the legislative process and must be revived in the next legislative session.
