After two weeks worth of early voting in the Ringgold City Council election process, officials say less than 10 percent of voters have cast ballots.

This year's Ringgold City Council race features four candidates vying for two at-large seats, in which the top two vote-getters will be the winners.

The race includes incumbents Randall Franks and Jake Haynes, as well as new candidates Rhonda Swaney and Kelly Bomar.

As of Tuesday morning, Oct. 31, officials with the Catoosa County Elections Office say 155 of the 1,751 active voters in the city of Ringgold have voted early, which comes to about 8.8-percent.

The 155 votes includes in-person and absentee ballots that were mailed out.

Early voting will continue at Ringgold City Hall through Friday, Nov. 3 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

Election Day will be Tuesday, Nov. 7. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Voters need to have a valid photo ID with them when they arrive to vote.
