Chatham County is voting a lot this year. Between special elections, primaries, and the general there will be at least five elections - and runoffs could bring the total to eight. Members of the elections board say the county could spend $1 million on elections this year. Now, they’re looking for changes.
Board chair Tom Mahoney told GPB’s Emily Jones all these elections are an opportunity for voters - but tough on officials.
The runoff in the special election to finish the House dist. 162 seat of the late Bob Bryant is Tuesday, Apr. 26. That term ends this year.
