As of 5pm on Monday, February 28, 2022, 122 votes have been cast for the District Three seat of the Sumter County Board of Commissioners. Citizens have requested 14 absentee ballots, none of which have been received back. Early voting started on February 21 and will continue until March 11. For this period of time, all votes will be cast at the Griffin Bell Golf and Conference Center at 1800 South Lee Street from 8am-5pm.

Election day is Tuesday, March 15, 2022, from 7am to 7pm. On the 15th, voters will need to make their choice at their regular precinct. Precincts which will be open on March 15th are Plains, Concord United Methodist Church, Leslie Civic Center, Thompson (SW Volunteer Fire Department), Jimmy Carter Airport, Griffin Bell Golf and Conference Center and the Agricultural Center. Voters who typically vote at these precincts may be eligible to vote in this race. However, only voters in District Three will be eligible to cast as vote, as this is not a Sumter County wide race.

If you would like to request an absentee ballot, please call the Voter Registration and Elections Office at 229.928.4580.
