The Hall County ballots contain contested races ranging from Governor to county school board.  Also included are the constitutional amendments and referendums that are being voted on statewide.  Sunday Brunch Alcohol Sales are on the ballot in several places in the area and Flowery Branch is holding a special election for a city council seat.
