A run-off election resulted on Sept. 18, after none of the three candidates in that election received enough votes to be declared victor.
The two who received the most -- incumbent Vonda Bailey and challenger Darrell Stidham -- will appear on the run-off ballot. Jennifer McCall did not receive enough votes to proceed to the run-off.
Of the frontrunners, Bailey received the most votes in the earlier election, with 39.26 percent of ballots cast. Stidham followed with 35.56 percent of the vote.
Polls have been open for early voting in the run-off since Oct. 2. At noon on Monday, Election Coordinator Bethe Henley said she had seen only 17 early voters, one of which voted by absentee ballot.
Polls will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. today at the Berryville Community Center.
Henley said all voters registered in Zone 1 were eligible to vote in the run-off, whether or not they had voted in the Sept. 18 election.
Voters uncertain of which zone they reside in could find out, she said, by visiting www.voterview.org or by calling the Carroll County Clerk's Office at 870-423-2022.
