MACON, Ga. — It's election day, and voters in Central Georgia are headed to the polls.
Voting on Tuesday will decide several races, including the Macon-Bibb mayoral race.
Bibb County Election Officer Thomas Gillon is expecting a smoother voting process than the June 9 election, when voters reported widespread issues at county polls.
He says they're still taking precautions around COVID-19, so voters can still expect to see social distancing guidelines in place.
The Macon-Bibb mayoral race isn't the only contest up for a vote. Central Georgia voters will decide nine races in five counties.
Here is a list of races in Central Georgia:
- There's a runoff for the District 5 County Commission seat, between Seth Clark and Carlton Kitchens.
- For the District 7 Commission seat, voters will choose between Bill Howell and Bonnie Thompson.
