The Polls Are Open (2024 Primary Election) | Macon Media

Today is Primary Election Day in Macon County

Polls open at 6.30am and will close at 7.30pm. Macon Media will begin posting coverage of local results as soon as they come in. Due to a new state law that prevents local election boards from counting early votes and mail in ballots until after the polls close, results will be posted later than usual.
