STATEMENT ON REFERENDUM SB509
Based on advice presented by General Counsel C. Ryan Germany of the Secretary of State’s office, we have rescinded the call to hold a separate Special Election to consider SB 509. The State has advised this referendum is not a Special Election. Therefore, it can be placed on the November 3, 2020 General (Presidential) Election.
Following the recommendation from the Secretary of the State General Counsel, the Board has moved to place SB 509 on the General Election ballot. We hope this decision will better serve the voters of Glynn County.
