During early voting for the Statesboro City Council on Thursday, 132 individuals came out to cast their ballots – the lightest turnout for the week so far. As in days past, the morning traffic was light with the afternoon picking up as the voter shuttles, picking up students in front of Retreiver's Bar And Grill, dropped off electors by the van load.
There were still a few people trying to vote from Districts 1 and 4 where no coucil seats are up for election.
On Thursday, 33 voters had their residency challenged and ended up casting provisional ballots, which will be counted or not depending upon the outcome of a hearing. County officials have not yet set a date for the hearings.
So far, a total of 738 people have cast ballots in the election. Today is the final chance for advance voting at City Hall, which will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday – Election Day.
