Voters to decide Dist. 1 runoff
Joe Kendrick

North Bryan voters will head back to the polls Tuesday to decide who will serve District 1 on the Bryan County Board of Commissioners.
Incumbent Commissioner Joe Kendrick and challenger Noah Covington are on the ballot again in a runoff election after a close race in the Nov. 6 general election.
Early voting for the runoff ended Friday. But just like Nov. 6, District 1 precincts at the J. Dixie Harn Community Center in Pembroke and gym at Hendrix Park in Black Creek will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for voters to cast their ballots.
Last month, Covington, a Republican, garnered 48 percent of votes while Kendrick, a Democrat, netted 28 percent. Former District 1 commissioner and independent challenger Rufus “Ed” Bacon was also on that ballot but only received 24 percent of votes.
A candidate must receive 50 percent plus one of votes from registered voters in their district to win the race outright. More than 2,200 votes were cast in the District 1 race.
