Smyrna voters who normally cast their ballots at Argyle Elementary School will have to cross the street and vote at Fire Station No. 3 on July 31 because the school is being renovated. A list of polling places can be found at the Cobb Board of Elections website.
On July 31 Smyrna-Vinings voters will decide where they stand on Sunday alcohol sales (again), whether they want the one-percent TSPLOST to pass and vote for a slew of non-partisan judges.
Republicans will decide which candidate should challenge incumbent Democratic District 6 State Sen. Doug Stoner—Josh Belinfante, Hunter Hill or Drew Ellenburg. Rep. Phil Gingrey, 11th U.S. Congressional District, has two challengers for the Republican nomination—Michael Opitz and William Llop. District 40 State Rep. Rich Golick is running unopposed.
Dems will nominate Rep. David Scott to represent the 13th U.S. Congressional District for another term. State Rep. Stacey Evans is running unopposed for District 42.
If the election were today how would you vote on TSPLOST and Sunday Sales? Who would you nominate to represent Smyrna-Vinings in Congress and at the State Capitol?
