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.
