Today election day in Senoia, Grantville, Sharpsburg

By SARAH FAY CAMPBELL sarah@newnan.com Today is election day in Grantville, Senoia and Sharpsburg. The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for voters in those municipal elections.
In Grantville, voters will choose between council incumbents Rochelle Jabaley and Nick Sasso, and challengers Marion Cieslik and Selma Coty. Voting is at the Glanton Municipal Center. Sharpsburg residents will choose between former Councilwoman Polly Garlington and former Mayor Wendall Staley for the mayor's seat. Voting is at the AO Bridges Recreation Center. And in Senoia, voters will vote for two of the three council candidates: incumbents Larry Owens and Jeff Fisher, and challenger Harry Ramos. Voting is at the East Coweta Senior Center. "We're looking forward to it," said Jane Scoggins, Coweta's elections superintendent. "We are ready, and of course, we just have the three." Poll workers will bring their data cards to Scoggins in the basement of the Coweta Administration Building for official tabulation. Results won't be posted on the county's Web site, however. "We're not going to post results online," Scoggins said. However, people can call her office Tuesday night and get the results. The number is 678-854-0015. Very few people chose to vote early in this election. Approximately 14 people voted in person in the voter registration office, said Registrar Joan Hamilton, and approximately 20 paper ballots were mailed out. All but four have been returned. "Hopefully, they will come in tomorrow by 7," Hamilton said Monday afternoon. Though the total number of early votes is small, it could make a difference in the results of a close election.
