Local voting very light today

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.
