Jan Moore and Jonathan McCollar got the most votes in the November elections but not enough to win the seat without a runoff. Mayor Joe Brannen came in third in the four person race.
In order to win outright a candidate must receiver 50% plus 1 votes. Moore finished with nearly 40% while McCollar received about 36% of the vote.
Those persons who voted in November can vote in the runoff. Also all registered voters living within the city prior to the November election may vote even if they did not in the general election. Shontay Jones with the Bulloch County Board of Elections, said voters must present a valid photo identification. More than 10,000 people are eligible to vote Tuesday. Only about 15% of them voted in November. By 4:40 p.m. last Wednesday 621 early ballots had been received.
The polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Voters in District 1 and 2 will vote at the Williams James Educational Complex on Williams Road. Districts 3, 4, and 5 voters will go to Pittman Park United Methodist Church, 1102 Fair Rod.
