Few local contests in surrounding counties
Voters in the surrounding counties of Polk, Chattooga, Gordon and Bartow will be deciding several contested local races Tuesday.
Three of the counties — Polk, Chattooga and Gordon — will weigh in with Floyd and other Northwest Georgia counties in the District 14 Congressional race between Republican incumbent Tom Graves and Democrat Steven Lamar Foster.
Bartow voters are in the 11th Congressional District, where Republican incumbent Barry Loudermilk is facing a challenge from Democrat Flynn D. Broady Jr.
None of the nearby counties have local ballot questions to decide.
Here’s a look at the contested races in the region:
Polk voters will fill the County Commission Post 2 seat with either Republican incumbent Jennifer Lankford Hulsey or Democratic challenger Ricky Clark.
