Communities hold special elections

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

Sasser, GA (WALB) -  Sasser has been without a mayor for a month now, but that could change tonight.  

In November, no one ran for Mayor. When Mayor Larry Hawf's term expired in December, Mayor pro temp Faye Bryant stepped in, but to run for the seat herself she had to step down from the city council.

David Cox is also running for the Mayor's seat.

Election officials were encouraged by today's turnout. 

"It's a general election and it's posted that they're going to have an election today. There's probably not but 300 people in the city we've had about 20 people come in so it's about typical," said Sasser Elections Official Keith Omary.

 Three candidates also qualified for the city commission seat. A special election for city commission was also held in Americus today.
