Election day is Tuesday, interest here remains low

Voter turnout in Grady County continues to be low even with the hotly contested Superior Court Judge race on the line.
As of Tuesday, only 343 early votes had been cast and the early voting period ends Friday at 5 p.m.
Only 43 voters took advantage of the one day of Saturday voting last Saturday.
“We thought we would have been busier with so many people in town with all of the events going on,” Jean Marshall with the Grady County Board of Registrars office said Tuesday.
Of the 343 early votes cast, 256 have been republican ballots and 87 democratic ballots.
The county’s 13 polling places will be open Tuesday, May 24, from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
The ballot is headlined by the non partisan election of Superior Court Judge for the South Georgia Judicial Circuit. That race features three candidates: Mike Bankston, Ryan Cleveland and Heather Lanier.
The race is being vigorously contested by the three candidates.
