Randolph County put on Tuesday’s election.

No winner was declared Tuesday night.

Black said that will come sometime next week probably, closer to Friday.

Before a winner is announced, hearings in both Calhoun and Early counties have to be held regarding a recent challenge that was filed questioning the residency of some of the voters on the registration list.

The first hearing will be in Early County on Friday.

The second will be Monday morning in Calhoun County, according to Black.

This special election was called after alleged voter irregularities from a 2019 election.
