Early Balloting Suggests Small Number Of Voters Likely To Decide Oconee County Transportation Tax Referendum

***Few Voters In City Races As Well***

Turnout for the Nov. 2 referendum on the Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax continues to be light with only five days of early voting remaining.

After the 11th day of early voting on Saturday, only 491 of the county’s 32,066 voters–or 1.5 percent--have participated in in-person voting at the Civic Center on Hog Mountain Road west of Butler’s Crossing.
