VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Today was election day again for part of Valdosta.

A run off election was held to decide who would be the city's district two representative because no candidate received enough votes in the November 5th general election.

Polling officials at the Mildred M. Hunter Community Center polling location said since the polls opened at 7 a.m., less than 20 people have showed up to vote.

"Thus far, it's been relatively slow," said Elinor Jackson, poll manager. "It's been kind of slow. We've had 16, and I think it's like 3,000 voters in this area. So, it's been pretty slow.

Voters in district two were the only ones who could vote in today's election. They had to choose between Calvin Graham, Sr. and Sandra J. Tooley.
