Voting off to a slow start in Albany

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  There's only one race on the ballot today, the Ward 3 City Commission seat.

Six precincts are voting in that race, and so far, turnout has been pretty light.

By 11:00 am, only 85 people had voted at the Convenant Presbyterian Church precinct.

Today's race pits former commissioner Arthur Williams against political novice Chris Pike.

They're running for the seat being vacated by Commissioner Morris Gurr.
