Early voting for runoff ends today

POSTED: July 18, 2014 12:02 a.m.

Today is the last day to vote early for Tuesday’s runoff election.

Advance voting is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today at the Hall County Government Center elections office on the lower floor, 2875 Browns Bridge Road, Gainesville.

The most notable local race to be decided is for the South Hall seat on the Hall County Board of Education.

Incumbent Brian Sloan barely missed the 50 percent plus 1 vote he needed to avoid the runoff, landing at 49.99 percent of the vote in the May 20 primary. He faces challenger Mark Pettitt who garnered 25.04 percent of the vote.

The other big-ticket race is between David Perdue and U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston of Savannah for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. The GOP winner will face Democrat Michelle Nunn and Libertarian Amanda Swafford of Flowery Branch in November.

There are also runoffs to determine both the Republican and Democratic nominees for the state school superintendent position.

The election is Tuesday, with polling places open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.
