November 5--  Some folks in Toombs County think they can vote today for Toombs County Sheriff, but they can't!

Toombs County Voting Registrar Carey Alligood says "a lot of folks" have shown up today to vote for sheriff, however, that race isn't on the ballot until May, 2020.

She says the early announcements by two candidates for sheriff, incumbent Sheriff Junior Kight and Lyons Police Chief Wesley Walker, gave people the idea the election for sheriff was today.

The only area contested races today are in city elections in Vidalia and in Mount Vernon, Higgston and Uvalda.

Find out who won those races after the polls close tonight at seven p.m. on NewsTalk WVOP, AM 970 and FM 105.3; Your Favorite, 98Q (FM 97.7), Sweet Onion Country 1017FM and streaming on the web at
