Most polls across Liberty County closed at 7 p.m. Tuesday, but reported delays and a heavier than expected turnout in Hinesville pushed voting at the Shuman Center to nearly 9, according to people at the scene.
People who were in line at 7 were allowed to vote.
Vote machines at that precinct were still being processed at 9:30 and because of that results had not been released at the registrar's office, officials there said.
Results will be posted here Wednesday morning.
Here’s what we voted on:
Countywide, including in cities
Two homestead exemption questions were approved in the General Assembly as local legislation but require voter approval. Both would exempt minor improvements and repairs (5 percent of the property value) from increased property tax assessments. One addresses the exemption for the school board’s ad valorem tax and the other addresses the exemption for county taxes.
There is one special election. It asks whether Sunday sales of alcohol should be allowed. Regulation of the sales would be left up to the city council. Most supporters have said the council would limit sales to restaurants.
