Early voting to begin


Voters head to the polls this weekend as early voting begins for next month’s election.

Ballots will be cast the following two Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Montgomery County Courthouse and Rock Point Church, 429 W. C.R. 150S. 

Early voting is also available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Oct. 28-Nov. 1 and 8 a.m. to noon Nov. 4 at the courthouse. 

The courthouse is not a polling site on Election Day Nov. 5.

Four city councilmen face challengers this year. Ward 2 Republican Scott Molin is defending his seat against Independent Ethan Hollander on the city’s southwest side.

In the south side Ward 5, Republican Stan Hamilton is seeking re-election against Democrat Joyce Burnette.

Voters will select two at-large councilmen. Incumbents Mike Reidy, a Democrat, and Andy Biddle, a Republican, are facing Libertarian Adam Hutchison.

On the northeast side, Republican Kent Priebe is set to take the Ward 3 seat currently held by Pete Utterback. Priebe is unopposed.

No challengers came forward for Ward 1 Republican Jeff Lucas, who represents the north and west ends, and Ward 4 Republican Jennifer Lowe, who serves the southeast side.
