Third Ward Primary up and running

1 year, 1 month ago by Bob Gough

County Clerk Georgia Volm is letting people vote at her office as well as at the polling place on South 36th Street

Quincy's lone polling place opened at its normal time this morning.

Adams County Clerk Georgia Volm said only one election judge failed to show up at the lone polling place in Quincy's 3rd Ward GOP Primary. She said polls would be open until at least 7 p.m. and may stay open later in order to get everyone in.

Volm also said that Third Ward voters could vote at her offices as well as at Christ Lutheran Church.

Volm was anticipating only about 500 people turning out for the primary today. 21 people had voted at Christ Lutheran Church as of 8:30 a.m.

Jared Holbrook, Ken Hultz and Rich Nichols are the three men running for the GOP nod for the seat being opened by incumbent Kyle Moore's mayoral run. The winner of Tuesday's primary will face Democrat Mike Martin, business representative for the Carpenters and Joiners Local 189, on April 9

Volm said about 30 people had  either early or absentee voted..

Holbrook, 31, is a driver for FedEx. Hultz, 63, owns Hultz We Care Auto Care. Nichols, 37, works for Colony Brands.
