Voters Tuesday, along with those who have already voted during early voting the past three weeks, will decide who will be the next Ogeechee Circuit Superior Court judge, the next Bulloch County Probate Court judge, and the next county commissioner in Seat 2A. All 16 Bulloch County polling places will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. When early voting closed at 5 p.m. Friday, 1,947 Bulloch County residents had cast in-person ballots, and 251 mailed absentee ballots had been returned. So 2,198 people had participated, or 7.23 percent of the county's 30,399 active registered voters, reported Bulloch County Election Supervisor Patricia Lanier Jones. This result and a flurry of voters Friday prompted Jones to revise her prediction of overall turnout for this runoff upward from the 10 percent she originally forecast to 15 percent.
