District 1, District 3 seats up for GOP ballot; Polk candidate in Congressional race on ballot for Dems

Who will be on the County Commission come January 1, 2025? Who will be the Democratic nominee for the District 14 Congressional seat? All of that will be decided this month.

A Primary runoff vote starts with early balloting next Monday, and local GOP supporters are being asked to come back for another round to decide on two races for the County Commission.

Democratic voters are deciding the choice of who will be taking on Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene to settle their choice for the 2024 general election challenge.

Early voting begins on Monday, June 10 and runs through Friday, June 14, at both precincts in Cedartown and Rockmart. Voters can cast a ballot from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, June 14 for an extended day.

Voters in the runoff will want to note that when they cast their ballot, they must have already voted in the primary. Election officials provided the following examples to determine which ballot you can choose:

For example, if you voted a republican ballot in the May 21st General Primary Election, you may only vote on a republican ballot in the June 18th Runoff Election. Additionally, if you voted a democratic ballot in the May 21st General Primary Election, you may only vote on a democratic ballot in the June 18th Runoff Election.

If you did not vote at all or you voted a nonpartisan ballot in the May 21st General Primary Election, you may vote in either the republican or democratic June 18th Runoff election.

Early Voting will be available at both the Goodyear Civic Center located at 108 Prior Street Cedartown, GA. 30125 and the Rockmart Community Center located at 604 Goodyear Avenue Rockmart, Ga. 30153.

The runoff vote concludes with election day coming up on June 18.

GOP voters are going to the polls to decide on County Commission District 1 and District 3 seats. The District 1 seat features challenger incumbent appointee Jordan Hubbard seeking a full term in office versus challenger Michael Gravett.

In the District 3 race, incumbent Ray Carter is hoping to gain a new term over challenger John Paschal.

The two races will determine the next County Commissioners for the District 1 and District 3 seats, since they face no Democrat challengers on the November ballot.

The Democratic ballot features the race between Clarence Blalock and Shawn Harris (a Polk County resident) to determine who will face Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene this fall.
