Early voting for two local municipal runoff races will end this Friday, Dec. 1, 2017. Early voting is currently being held daily from 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. at the Gordon County Elections and Voter Registration Office, located in the old BB&T Building at 215 North Wall Street in downtown Calhoun.

Races facing runoffs include Calhoun City Council Post 4, where former City Council member Ray Denmon faces former Gordon County Commissioner Alvin Long, along with the Resaca Town Council Post 3 runoff between Michael Austin and Randy Barron.
