ATLANTA (AP) -- July 20, 2012

For the first time, voters statewide have the option to cast their ballot on Saturday for the 2012 primary election.

The Legislature moved this session to add a Saturday to the early voting period, which was shortened from 45 days to 21. Early voting opened July 9 and ends July 27. Voters don't have the option of voting any other Saturday before the July 31 election.

Under state law, polls must remain open between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., but local elections officials can open earlier or close later.

Georgia Secretary of State spokesman Jared Thomas says early voting has been steady, and the Saturday voting option is meant to give voters a convenient alternative to get to the polls.
