Runoff in District 30 Race Begins Today
Voters in four Paulding precincts have this week and Dec. 4 to help select the Republican candidate who will move onto a January special election to determine the next state senator for District 30.
The holiday season may be upon us, but for voters in four Paulding County voting precincts, it’s still election season.
Those voters who cast ballots at the Taylor Farm Park, Nebo Elementary, Austin Middle and Carl Scoggins Middle precincts starting today can 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.
The runoff between Mike Dugan and Bill Hembree will be held Dec. 4, but affected voters can early vote this week at the Paulding County elections office. The elections office is the only place early voting will be offered, but voters’ regular polling places will be open on the Dec. 4 election day.
Dugan and Hembree advanced to the runoff by being the top two vote-getters out of four during a Nov. 6 special election. The winner of next week’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.
