City election early voting ends Tuesday

Early voting for the Jan. 9 west ward city council election is light with only xx casting ballots through Tuesday at City Hall.

The final day to vote early is Tuesday, Jan. 5.

Doug Calame and write- in candidate Donald “Duck” Shuffield are vying for the west ward position which has been open since Griffin Rogers was removed from office in September.

Only west ward voters inside the City of Rockdale will participate in the election. Check the back of your voter registration card. If it says “RKDW” under the box labeled “city” you can vote in this election.

There’s another catch. The old orange voter registration card expires Thursday, Dec. 31 but can still be used to vote early through that day.

To vote early Monday and Tuesday, Jan. 4 and 5, the final two days of early voting, or to cast a ballot in the actual election, Jan. 9 you will need the new blue voter registration card which was mailed out last week. Here’s the remainder of the schedule, all at City Hall:

Dec. 30-31—Early voting 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Jan. 1—Closed for holiday.

Jan. 4-5—Early voting 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Jan. 9—Election day, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
