Drop Box Played Prominent Role In Oconee County Absentee Balloting In November And January

***Removal Of Outside Drop Box Likely To Have Impact***

More than half of the absentee ballots received in Oconee County in the Nov. 3, 2020, election were deposited in the drop box in front of the Elections and Registration Office opposite the Courthouse in downtown Watkinsville.

Of the ballots received after early voting ended, 60.1 percent were via the secure drop box in the front of the elections office.

Of the ballots received before early voting started, half came in via the drop box.
