Early, in-person voting starts next week in the special election to replace former Sheriff Mike Williams. The first election in August narrowed the field to two candidates: Lakesha Burton (D) and T.K. Waters (R).
Starting Monday, Oct. 24, voters can cast a ballot at any of 20 libraries, community centers and churches operating as early voting sites. Voting sites are open seven days a week until Nov. 6. On Election Day, Nov. 8, voters can cast a ballot only at their neighborhood precinct.
