Reidsville: Mayor: Incumbent Curtis Colwell, Vickie Nail, and Steven Richardson; Ward I: Incumbent Verdie Williams, Nathaniel Joyce, and Sydney Clifton; Ward II: Incumbent Donald Prestage and Steven Drinks. (Please note that Nathaniel Joyce’s name was unintentionally omitted in the October 12 edition of The Journal Sentinel.)
Collins: Mayor: Kenny Norris and Charles Rushton: Council: James Cowart II, Charles Jan Scott, and Tracy Buford.
In addition, the City of Collins has a special election for the sale of issuing "licenses to sell distilled spirits for beverage purposes by the drink, such sales to be for the consumption only on the premises." (See specifics in the ad in this week's edition of The Journal Sentinel.)
There will be no elections held for Cobbtown and Manassas since none of the candidates represent contested offices.
Also, the candidate with the highest number of votes will be the winner, since in the elections of city officials in Tattnall, the winner is based on plurality of votes and not the 50 percent plus one rule for county commissioners.
