Voting is at a slow trickle in today's runoff elections for two statewide judicial posts and the District 2 school board race.

"I would say that turnout is extremely light," Richmond County Elections Director Lynn Bailey said.

All 50 of Augusta's polling locations will be open until 7 p.m.

Only 71 people voted early in Augusta-Richmond County, and Bailey said she expected turnout here to be between 5 and 10 percent.

The District 2 runoff pits incumbent Eloise Curtis, who is seeking her fourth term, against businessman Charlie Hannah.

I voted as always. I wish

I voted as always. I wish people cared enough to get out and vote. We know they can, because in the last presidential election, turnout was huge. Where are you all now? Too good to vote in a run-off? Don't care about it if none of the candidates are celebrities? Be ashamed is all I can say. You don't deserve to have this privilege if you can't be bothered to use it.
