Polls Open for Republican Runoff Today
Only voters in four Paulding precincts will be casting ballots at their normal polling places today. Today’s runoff will select the Republican candidate who will move onto a January special election to determine the next state senator for District 30.
Residents in four Paulding County voting precincts will have 12 hours today to visit the polls to weigh in on one election.
Voters who cast ballots at the Taylor Farm Park, Nebo Elementary, Austin Middle and Carl Scoggins Middle precincts starting at 7 a.m. can head to their respective polling places to weigh in on a runoff election to determine the Republican candidate who will advance in the race to become the next state senator for District 30.
Voters will choose between Mike Dugan and Bill Hembree in today’s election; the two advanced to the runoff by being the top two vote-getters out of four during a Nov. 6 special election.
The polls close at 7 p.m.; anyone still in line to vote once the polls close will be allowed to cast a ballot.
The winner of today’s election will advance to face James Camp, a Libertarian, in a Jan. 8 special election to ultimately determine the district’s next senator.
District 30 also includes a western portion of Douglas County and most of Carroll County.
Return to Dallas-Hiram Patch tonight for runoff results.
