Advance voting in the upcoming Barnesville municipal election got underway Monday.
Registered voters may cast ballots daily through Oct. 30 at the elections board office in the county annex on Thomaston Street. This is the old T Street Barracks building. The office is open daily from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
There are two contested races on city ballots.
Incumbent mayor Peter Banks is facing a challenge from political newcomer Wanda Sumners Brothers while incumbent ward three councilman Sammie Shropshire is being challenged by Dorothy Carter.
The four appeared at a candidates forum last week that attracted 57 attendees to the civic center.
