Foot traffic at the polls is light, according to Bryan County Elections Supervisor Cindy Reynolds.

“The most we have was in Precinct 1, which is the precinct where they’re voting on the alcohol referendum, and at last count, they had 47,” Reynolds said of the polling places about 1:30 p.m. today. “The rest of them are holding about in the 20s.”

Reynolds also reported no issues at any of the county’s 10 precincts.

Voters countywide are asked to decide whether or not to allow Bryan County Schools to issue bonds up to $100 million to build new schools, a measure that also would require a 1.5 mill tax increase on property owners to help pay for the bonds. Voters are also being asked to renew the education Special-Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, or ESPLOST.

Pembroke residents will also decide if the city should allow Sunday liquor by the drink alcohol sales in the city and packaged alcohol sales by retailers.

Polls close at 7 p.m. today.
