Polls open today for District 1 commission seat run-off election


MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Polls are officially open for the District 1 commission seat election between candidates Lynn Wood and Valerie Wynn.

The election on May 22nd came down to a run-off between the two remaining candidates with Wood garnering 47% of the vote and Valerie Wynn following closely with 41% of the vote. Residents are encouraged to come out today.

Poll manager Michael O’neal says with such a slow turn out, this election may come down to just a few votes.

“Normally for our precinct here, we have really higher voting, voters coming out so this is a little smaller compared to what we normally get, but we normally get a lot more voters coming out on this day,” said O’neal.

O’neal says he’s hoping to see more people come out later in the day. Polls close at 7:00 this evening so if you haven’t voted you’ve still got some time to get out there.

The following are polling locations in District 1:

Mable white Baptist Church 1415 Bass Road Macon, GA 31210

Forest Hill Methodist Church 1217 Forest Hill Road Macon, GA 31210
