Polls for the precincts in District 22 of the state House of Representatives will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday for the special election to fill the seat of the late state Rep. Calvin Hill (R-Canton.)

Early voting in the race for the District 22 seat ended at 5:30 p.m. Friday. On Thursday, officials reported a low showing of early ballots for the seat, which was left vacant after Hill’s death in late October.

Jeff Duncan, Sam Moore, Nate Cochran and Meagan Biello, all Republicans from Cherokee County, are running for the seat that covers parts of Cherokee, Forsyth and Fulton counties.

Moore, 37, lives in the Macedonia community and says he is in the process of opening a small business.

Duncan, 52, of Ball Ground, is a businessman and is the former Cherokee GOP chair.

Cochran, 37, lives in the Free Home community and is an attorney in downtown Canton.

Biello is a 32-year-old Ball Ground resident who teaches at Creekview High School.

With four candidates on the ballot, officials have said a runoff is likely. Should a runoff be needed, it would be conducted Feb. 4.
