Early voting off to sluggish start in Live Oak

Live Oak — Early voting for the May 6 Live Oak election began at 8:30 a.m. Monday and is off to a slow start, Supervisor of Elections Glenda Williams said Wednesday morning. 

Only 31 ballots have been cast so far, however, there have been more absentee ballot requests than in previous elections. Five hundred forty have requested absentees.

"So far, 292 have returned them," said Williams. "In 2012, we had 263 returned absentees and in 2010, we had  310 returned. Hopefully, the absentees will continue to come in and early voting will pick up as the week progresses."

You can vote early at Williams' office at 220 Pine Ave. SW, Live Oak, from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. through Saturday. 

The election is Tuesday, May 6.

Those offices up for grabs are mayor and city clerk and there is one charter amendment.
