Jordan steps down from Hoschton council, special election to be held in May

A special election will be held May 22, the same day as the statewide primary elections, in Hoschton to elect a candidate for the city council, though residents will have to make a special trip to the Hoschton Depot to cast a ballot in the council race.

As expected, Tracy Jordan resigned from the council on March 7 to make a run for Georgia Insurance Commissioner, according to April Plank, city manager.

Any residents interested in filling the rest of Jordan's term can qualify between April 9-11, said Plank.

On May 22, though, voters will have to go to two different precincts to vote in the primaries and the special election, should they want to do both.

"Thankfully they're only a mile-and-a-half away from each other," said Plank.

"We couldn't get them on the same ballot."

Voters, therefore, will have to go to their regular voting precinct to vote in the primaries, then head to the Hoschton Depot to vote in the special election.
