The University of Georgia’s Stegeman Coliseum will be used as an early voting site for the general election in November. 

UGA offered the coliseum as an advanced voting site on Thursday morning, and state and local officials approved the location shortly after. 

UGA’s decision was made in response to criticism from a previous statement, which said the university would not hold an early voting site on campus due to lack of space in the Tate Student Center, which served as a voting site in previous elections.
