First, is your ballot in? If an unaffiliated voter returns a ballot for more than one major political party, the ballot will be rejected and none of the votes will be counted.

Anyone who didn't vote in the Republican primary can vote in Tuesday's election, or vote early through Friday.

Polls are still open and extended hours are still in place for Thursday at the Rockmart Community Center on Goodyear Street in Rockmart, or at the Board of Elections office within the County Administration building on West Avenue in Cedartown.

In the race for Blackford Circuit Court, Republican Brian Bade overtook two other challengers with a total 846 votes or 47.07 percent of votes cast for the position. Should these county commission seats be nonpartisan, the way that city council seats in the mid-valley tend to be?

UPDATE: most numbers have been tallied in many counties, click the links below for more.

Almost 30 percent of registered voters cast ballots in the local election that had three contested races.

Absentee ballots are available for download by logging onto sos.ga.gov or at the Elections & Voter Registration office. The names of the candidates for the Republican Party nomination for that office will appear on the ballot in all Albemarle County voting precincts. However, Mina Davis and Josh Henningsen are 34 votes apart for second and third place, respectively. That process is repeated until one contender emerges with more than 50 percent of the vote. At a Primary Election a voter may only vote in one party's primary.

For Madison County sheriff, candidates are Jon Downey, Todd Volk, Chris Hjorth and Dave Unger. And it only comes into play when there are three or more candidates for a particular office. It is time for Black people to "Takeover The Polls" in every local, county, state and federal election in this country. We will wait anxiously. So far, the county hasn't run out of ballots.
