MOULTRIE — A story in Friday's Moultrie Observer explained a detail about the current election in a way that was less than clear.
Voters in the May 20 primary (and the early voting period that ends today, May 16) must choose a Republican, Democrat or Non-Partisan ballot. The Republican and Democratic ballots include non-partisan races as well as the party primaries. The Non-Partisan ballot contains only non-partisan races.
There are no contested, local Democratic races, although there are some contested Democratic races at the state level. All contested county commission races are on the Republican ballot, and the contested school board and Superior Court judge races are non-partisan races. There are also contested Republican races at the state level.
The Observer regrets any confusion.
