Some 36,000 people out of 50,711 registered Bartow County voters cast ballots in Tuesday’s general election.
The election posed some issues for the county, because a portion of Taylorsville rests in Polk County. Additionally, Emerson residents had to visit two different polling locations on Tuesday if they wanted to vote in both the general election and on questions specific to their city.
The county’s elections office printed an informational flier prior to the election explaining those issues.
