This week marks the final week of advance voting in the August 11th run-off election. Voters in Floyd County may cast ballots in advance at the county’s Administration Building on East 4th Avenue any time between 8 am and 5 pm through this Friday, August 7th.
The runoff will determine who will represent the Republican party in the 14th Congressional District race; candidates include Marjorie Greene and Dr. John Cowan. The winner will face Kevin Van Ausdal, the Democratic nominee, in November. Also in the runoff election, Tom Caldwell and Dave Roberson are vying to become Floyd County’s next Sheriff. Both are Republicans; there is no Democratic opposition for that post in the fall.
For more details about the run-off, early voting, and absentee voting, contact the Floyd County Elections Office at (706) 291-5167 or visit the Secretary of State’s My Voter Page at www.mvp.sos.ga.gov.
