Election day for trio of municipalities Nov. 7
The opportunity to vote early for three Screven County municipalities will end on Friday, Nov. 3, but the actual 12 hours to cast a ballot on election day will be on Nov. 7.
From the hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Hiltonia, Rocky Ford and Sylvania, the polls will be open for registered voters.
Advanced voting has been conducted at the Screven County Courthouse in the registrar’s office from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In Hiltonia, three council member seats are available with four -- two of whom are incumbents -- on the ballot. Incumbents Jeremy D. Forehand and Bobby C. Mobley are in the race with Laronzo Brooks and Ben Hodges.
Additionally, a special election will be on the Nov. 7 Hiltonia ballot as Shirley Walker faces no opposition.
A referendum question also has been posed to the Hiltonia voters.
It reads, “Shall the Town of Hiltonia, Mayor and Council, reinstate collection of property taxes within the corporate limits of the municipality of Hiltonia. This tax is for the purpose of raising revenues to defray the costs of operating the municipal government, and/or providing governmental services, for the repayment of general obligations, and for any other public purpose as determined by the mayor and council in their discretion?”
In Rocky Ford, a general election will be held for the purpose of the election of mayor and three town council members.
Two are running for mayor – Danny Burke and incumbent Ken Mel Mock. Three are on the ballot for the three council seats – incumbent Drew Dudley, Samantha Forehand and incumbent Willette Mock.
In Sylvania, three council seats will be on the ballot and four candidates are running – two incumbents and two political newcomers. Incumbents Tripp Sheppard, who is the current mayor pro tem, and Clint Williams are joined by Craig Lariscy and Wallis (Eddie) Lovett.
