VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Voters in Lowndes County are deciding whether to expand the county commission.

The referendum would change the County Commission from four to six commissioners.

The county would be divided into two super districts which overlay the three existing districts.

The two additional commissioners would represent the super districts. Election managers say, whatever your opinion on the referendum, you need to vote.

"Please come vote, this election is just as important to those who are running and the referendum is just as important as it is a presidential election, so come out and vote and show your support for the people who are counting on you to put them in office," said Susan Hennly, Lowndes County Board of Elections Assistant Supervisor.  

There are also numerous city races on the ballot in Valdosta, Hahira, and Dasher.
