Early voting will be held through Friday, Aug. 7, for the run-off election.

One local race will be on the run-off ballot — the District 4 seat on the Banks County Board of Commissioners. In that race, Keith Gardiner and William Reems will be on the ballot.

Early voting will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays at the Elections Office, located at 226 Candler Street, Homer.

There will be two other run-off races on the Aug. 11 ballot:

•In the crowded Republican District 9 race for Congress, Matt Gurtler is headed for a runoff with Andrew Clyde. The winner will face the winner of a Democratic runoff between Brooke Siskin and Devin Pandy.

•In the contest for State Senate District 50, there will be a runoff between Bo Hatchett and Stacey Hall for the Republican nomination. The winner will face Democrat Dee Delany in the November General Election.
