Governor Deal signs bill moving primary to May 20

Posted: Updated:
   Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has signed an elections bill that officially moves primary elections for state offices from July to May 20.  The bill aligns state office primaries with the date of the primary for federal offices. 

   A federal court moved the date for federal elections earlier after ruling that the state's runoff period must be at least 45 days to provide time for military ballots to be returned from overseas. 

   The primary runoff would be held July 22 if necessary.
