Despite disappointing turnout at some of the polls, voters elected new leaders in Grovetown and Harlem on Tuesday.
Only 4.3 percent of the active registered voters in Grovetown, 206 voters, went to the polls Tuesday.
“(It’s) very low,” Columbia County Board of Elections Executive Director Nancy Gay said. During a similar election in 2011 that also included the Sunday alcohol sales ordinance, 12.8 percent of active voters turned out.
In Harlem, 221 residents voted constituting 16.1 percent of active voters.
