Today is the final day of advance voting in the runoff election to fill one of the at-large seats on the Winder City Council. So far, 331 Winder residents have voted in person at the Barrow County Board of Elections office and 15 or more residents have submitted paper absentee ballots. Those numbers are close to the early turnout for the Nov. 6 election that resulted in the runoff between incumbent Bob Dixon and challenger Lorin Sinn-Clark.
Elections supervisor Monica Franklin said with the bad weather, and folks making preparations for Thanksgiving tomorrow, she doesn’t expect much traffic today in her office. The opportunity to vote early ends at 5 p.m. To vote in person, go to the elections office at 233 E. Broad St. The only polling place for the Dec. 3 balloting will be at the Winder Community Center. All registered voters in Winder can vote in this election, since it is for an at-large seat that represents the entire city.
