According to the Secretary of State's website, before any of the three counties report their numbers , Congressman Tom Price is leading the race for U.S. Representative District 6. And n either of the two counties have reported Sen. John Albers, but leads State Senate District 56 race.

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. Albers collected 1,324 of these votes, with 432 picking Sadiq. That's approximately a 75-25 percent ratio.

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. 

Locally, focus will also be on the District 56 state senate race in which Akhtar Sadiq has challenged State Sen. John Albers, the Republican incumbent.
