In the first two weeks of early voting at the county elections office, more municipal voters from Auburn, Bethlehem and Winder cast their ballots than did voters from unincorporated portions of Barrow County.
Friday’s single-day turnout of 88 voters was the most since early voting began on Oct. 17 at the Barrow County Board of Elections & Registration.
“Our two-week total ended with 660 (votes),” said interim elections supervisor Monica Franklin in an email at the end of the day.
A total of 239 votes have been cast in the municipal elections managed by the county elections office, and 421 votes have been cast in the countywide special election on two issues.
However, since most the municipal voters also cast ballots in the county election, the best estimate of actual voter turnout over the two-week period is 421 voters.
That includes about 239 voters from the three municipalities, plus another 182 voters from unincorporated areas of the county. The county does not manage Statham's elections.
