Two local races to be decided in primary balloting

Pike County voters will go to the polls Tuesday, July 20 to cast ballots in the Georgia General Primary. Those ballots will decide two local races. Voters in Pike’s district 2 will decide whether to return incumbent Parrish Swift to the county commission or replace him with challenger Tamra Jarrett. Voters must choose a Republican ballot to vote in this race. Pike voters, along with those in Lamar County and portions of Upson County, will also decide the Georgia House District 127 race where incumbent Billy Maddox is challenged by Dr. Spencer Price. Again, voters must choose a Republican ballot to vote in this race. Pike’s district 1 commission race, in which Democratic incumbent Roosevelt Willis is facing Republican challenger Carol Bass, will be decided in the general election November 2. Multiple additional state and regional races, including those for governor and lieutenant governor, are also on the ballot.
