Citizens encouraged to vote in runoff elections


Early voting ended Wednesday in municipal election runoffs around Georgia.

In Cordele, Sammy Hill Senior is running against Vesta Beal Shephard in Ward 1 and Wesley Rainey and Billy White are running for the Ward 4 city commission seat.

The election supervisor says only about 100 of the 3,100 registered voters showed up in the 8 days of early voting. 

"We do make a difference in what goes on in our city and our community and this is one big way we can make a difference--by choosing who manages all of our affairs for us," said Elections Supervisor Becky Perkins.

Election day will be Tuesday, December 1st from 7 to 7.
