Early voting going slow in state House special election » Local News »

Just six people had voted in Whitfield County as of Monday morning in early voting in the special election for state House of Representatives District 2.

That district includes Trichum, Tunnel Hill and Westside in Whitfield County, as well as parts of Walker and Catoosa counties. The Whitfield precincts include some 6,800 registered voters.

Early voting halts today and Wednesday because the Whitfield County Courthouse is closed for the Christmas holiday. It resumes Thursday in the elections office and will conclude Friday, Jan. 3. The election will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 7.

Pharmacist and former LaFayette mayor Neal Florence, businessman and former Chickamauga City Council member and school board member Steve Tarvin and attorney Doug Woodruff, all Republicans, are running for the unexpired term of Jay Neal, which concludes at the end of 2014. Neal stepped down in November after being appointed by Gov. Nathan Deal as executive director of the Governor’s Office of Transition, Support and Re-entry, which helps integrate prison inmates into society.
