Leesburg-- The election to fill a vacant Leesburg city council seat is not drawing big crowds to the polls.

Only 70 people, that's less than ten percent of registered voters in Leesburg, had cast their ballot by two this afternoon. Since 6:30 a.m. this morning, candidate Victor Stubbs and his family campaigned across the street from the polling place, holding sings encouraging people to vote, "I believe my supporters will come out. It's been a little better as the day goes on. Maybe when people get off work they will come out and cast votes then."

Steve Kitchens is also running for the seat left vacant by former Leesburg City Councilman Morris Leverett. The polls close tonight at seven.
