Chatham Election Officials Clarify Mar. 29 Races

Mar 23, 2016

Chatham County elections officials are clarifying the rules ahead of next week's special elections.

There will be two elections on March 29. The first is the runoff for Sheriff, between Roy Harris and John Wilcher. Voters countywide can cast ballots in that race as long as they were registered by February 1.

The second vote is a special election to fill the seat of Garden City Representative Bob Bryant, who died last month. Only residents of the 19 precincts in Bryant's House district - the 162nd district - can vote in that election. Those precincts are listed below.

That race also has a different registration deadline. To cast a ballot in the House special election, voters needed to register by March 7.

 Three candidates are vying for Bryant's seat: Alicia Blakely, Carl Gilliard, and Josey Sheppard.
