Runoff Election Is Tuesday
Eligible Douglas County residents wishing to vote in the District 66 or 62 Georgia House races can go to their regular voting location from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.
The Georgia House District 66 GOP and District 62 races have yet to be decided since none of the candidates earned 50 percent plus one vote on election night.
That means Bob Snelling will face off in a runoff against Mike Miller and Marvin Arrington will be facing LaDawn Bleckett Jones on Tuesday, Aug. 21.
Snelling earned 2,533 votes, 49.63 percent; while Miller had 1,387 votes, 27.17 percent.
Arrington finished with 3,114 votes, 47.66 percent; while Jones earned 1,860 votes, or 28.47 percent of the vote.
Early voting is closed and citizens may only vote at their eligible voting location. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
