Valdosta voters head to the polls

November 4, 2003

Valdosta - Voters are making history today, as they head to the polls to elect their first new mayor in 16 years. Former mayor James Rainwater died unexpectedly on October 12th, leaving two candidates in the race, John Fretti and Benny Mitcham.

Voters are also casting ballots for several new city council and school board members.

Poll managers say they're surprised at the large voter turnout. "I've heard a lot of people talking about the mayoral race this morning, so I think that may have had something to do with our good turnout," said Lowell Young.

People can check election results as they come in by going to www.lowndescounty.com and clicking on "Election 2003."
