Just shy of 71,000 people call Warner Robins home, according to the census.

During the last mayoral election in 2009, about 6,000 people voted. That's about 8-percent of the population.

Tuesday, Election Day, the International City's roughly 43,715 registered voters get another shot at choosing who runs City Hall.

Six precincts will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. for voters who live in the city limits.

City Election Superintendent Kathy Cummings says she saw a steady turn-out through the three weeks of early voting at City Hall. About 2,500 people cast ballots.

That's more than double the number from the last mayoral election. In 2009, Cummings says about 1,200 people voted early.

Voters have a few choices to make. All of them can have a say in two races: The mayor's office and the Post 1 council seat, which represents the entire city.

The candidates are former council member Mike Brashear, Robins Air Force Base employee Chuck Chalk, retired insurance agent Eva Folse, current council member Daron Lee, retired city Public Works director Joe Musselwhite and retired city fire fighter Randy Toms.

The city-wide Post 1 seat may be of high interest. The incumbent, council member Mike Daley, faces the current mayor, Chuck Shaheen.

Shaheen says he's not seeking the top job again for the higher pay and retirement benefits of a private sector job.

Retired city fire fighter Charlie Scott also wants the seat, along with minister Jeffrey Walker.

There are three other council seats up for grabs in Post 3, Post 4, and Post 5. Only people who live in those districts can vote on those races.

Results will be counted at City Hall and posted on a big screen there.

You can watch the returns as they come in here on 13WMAZ and WMAZ news at 10 p.m. on the CW.
