UPDATE 8 p.m.
Only a few absentee and advance voting ballots from Cherokee County have been counted in the state Senate District 56 race between incumbent John Albers, R-Roswell, and his Democratic challenger, Akhtar Sadiq.

While the nation watches the presidential election closely Nov. 6, Roswell residents will also have their eye on a few more local issues.
The bond referendum on Tuesday's general election ballot has drawn out both proponents and opponents. It will ask voters to decide whether or not a $14.7 million bond should be taken out to finance "traffic mitigation," "park facilities" and a "fire station," among other things. The bond has been said to not affect the city's millage rate, since, if approved, it will replace current bonds about to be paid off.
