After weeks of candidates campaigning and talking, now it’s the voters’ turn to speak out. Early voting in local city elections will end Friday and voters who didn’t vote early will go to the polls next Tuesday for the final act. Highlighting local elections is the heated contest for Mayor of Jefferson between Darren Glenn and Roy Plott to replace retiring mayor Jim Joiner. The race has featured some high profile people, including sitting city council members and the mayor, taking sides in the race.
Also on the ballot in Jefferson will be two council seats and one board of education race. In the District 4 city council race, incumbent Kathy DuBose and Malcolm Gramley will face each other on the ballot. In the District 5 city council race, Don Kupis and Doug Turco qualified to fill the seat held by Plott, who resigned to run for mayor. In the District 4 Jefferson City Board of Education race, incumbent Derrell Crowe faces challenger Blanche McCreary will be on the ballot.
Voters in two towns will be casting a ballot on alcohol sales. In Nicholson, there will be a referendum for the sale of alcohol. In Pendergrass, voters will be asked whether the sale of alcohol on Sundays should be approved.
There will also be an election in Commerce. In the Ward 2 city council district, incumbent Darren Owensby will face Donald Wilson. In the District 1 school board race, Nathan Anderson and Kevin Tate will be on the ballot.
