IRWIN CO., GA (WALB) -

Polls won't open until next week in Irwin County for early voting in the special election to fill the state House seat in district 155. 

Republicans Horace Hudgins and Clay Pirkle are in a runoff  vying for the seat vacated by Jay Roberts. Officials are encouraging citizens to hit one of the 8 precincts in Irwin County. 

"It's pitiful that 25% of the people elect the officials for 100% people. It's not going to get any better until people take an interest," said Election Supervisor Steve Hamby. 

Ben Hill County will start taking early votes Tuesday. Election day is Tuesday, August 11th.
