Qualifying begins next week for city

Two council seats, liquor sales on ballot

POSTED: August 21, 2013 4:00 a.m.

Qualifying for Dawsonville's Nov. 5 election begins Monday.

The ballot will feature two city council seats, as well as a referendum on Sunday restaurant liquor sales.

Qualifying will run through Aug. 30.

City residents will be able to register for voting from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. next week in the Dawson County Board of Elections & Registration office on Academy Avenue.

The last day to register to vote in the Nov. 5 election is Oct. 7.

This year's ballot will feature the council seats currently held by Mike Sosebee and Angie Smith.

Sosebee has confirmed that he will seek re-election. Smith, however, was more tentative.

"I love being involved in the city and helping it in any way that I can, but I have family and kids to consider," she said. "This is a very big commitment. I'm still in the thought process."

The qualifying fee for a council seat is $180. Dates and fees for this year's election were set by the council during its Jan. 7 meeting, pursuant to state law.

In addition to the municipal posts, voters also will consider whether to allow restaurants in the city to sell liquor by the drink on Sundays. Currently, they can only sell beer and wine.
