On Tuesday, November 7, voters in the cities of Covington and Porterdale will elect new mayors and fill multiple city council seats. Advanced in person absentee voting starts Monday, October 16. To help you make informed choices, we asked candidates in each contested race to respond to five questions about sustainability.
We're sharing the answers we received below and noting which candidates did not respond. We encourage you to consider this information before casting your ballot.
Because there is also a countywide special election on November 7, Covington voters will cast their ballots at their normal polling place for county, state, and federal elections. Porterdale citizens will still vote at City Hall. To confirm your polling location, dates for early voting, and to view a sample ballot, visit the Georgia Secretary of State's My Voter Page.
