Turnout sporadic in first week of early voting for Hall County SPLOST
Weather blamed for limited ballots cast; Election Day set for March 17
Troy Danner casts his ballot Friday morning at the Hall County Elections office during early voting on SPLOST VII. Voting will continue the next two weeks, with Election Day set for March 17.
Turnout during the first week of early voting on a new round of special purpose local option sales tax, or SPLOST VII, was sporadic, with snowy weather and government closings likely limiting the number who showed up to the polls. Between Monday and Thursday, just 241 voters had cast ballots, while 45 absentee ballots had been mailed, according to Hall County Elections Director Charlotte Sosebee. Another 72 voters rolled through on Friday, while an additional 17 absentee ballots were mailed.
