Registered voters in Liberty County can already vote in the special election that is set for Tuesday, Nov. 3.
Local voters will choose a new state senator and Midway residents will vote for their city’s next mayor and four new city council members.
Former State Rep. Buddy Carter of Pooler, who represented House District 159, will run against Dr. Billy Hair of Savannah for the District 1 state Senate seat. A runoff election, if needed, will be Tuesday, Dec. 1.
In Midway, incumbent council member Clemontine Washington is the only mayoral candidate. She will replace incumbent Don Emmons.
There are four seats open on the Midway City Council. Incumbents seeking re-election include Levern Clancy Jr. and Jim H. Woods. The other candidates for city council are Rose Mary Brown, Terry Doyle, Melice Hamilton, Curtes H. Roberts Sr. and Henry O. Stevens, Jr. — the son of councilman Henry Stevens, who is not seeking re-election.
Ten out of 13 precincts in Liberty County will be open on election day. Open precincts include the first, second, third, fifth, sixth, part of the ninth, the 11th, part of the 12th, part of the 13th and a small portion of the 14th, according to Ella Golden, Liberty County interim supervisor of elections.
Polls for the special election will be open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m.
Golden said voters can find a poll locater on the secretary of state’s Web site, as well as driving directions, or they can call her office at 876-3310 for more information.
