Tuesday is election day in Georgetown and Andrews. Voters in each community will get to choose three members of their city council or town council. And in Georgetown, voters also get to choose who will be mayor for the next four years.
Polls in both Georgetown and Andrews will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. If you're registered to vote and live in either municipality, you have the right and responsibility to vote.
The Georgetown Times does not endorse candidates. We've run quite a few letters to the editor from people supporting one or more of the people running, and of course we've reported on the issues and the biographies of the candidates.
In the upcoming City of Georgetown election, there are three open seats for City Council, plus the race for mayor.
We ran biographical statements and photos of all the candidates in the Friday, Oct. 11 issue of the Georgetown Times. We reported on the candidate forum in our Wednesday, Oct. 16 edition. On Oct. 30 we had a Q&A feature with the Georgetown candidates, and we have another story in today's paper.
We encourage voters in the Georgetown election to read these bios, the story about the forum, as well as other coverage.
As candidates announced for Town Council in Andrews announced, we ran stories about each. We have a Q&A feature on Page 7B in today's paper.
We encourage people to exercise one of their most important freedoms.
We'll have election results on our Web site Tuesday evening as soon as they are available. Visit www.gtowntimes.com for election night updates.
