August 1, 2004

Albany- Election officials say with the start of the new school year parents may be taking more advantage of the early voting period for the August 10th runoffs.

Voters can cast advance ballots at county voter registration offices. Unlike absentee voting, voters do not need to have a reason for early voting.

There are several big races in Southwest Georgia. Sumter County Sheriff Robert Ingle will go up against James Driver in the Democratic runoff.

Bobby McLemore and Bobby Clark will square off in the race for Ben Hill County Sheriff, and State Representative Lawrence Roberts will try to hang on to his seat for House District 151 as he faces retired teacher Freddie Powell Sims.
