WARNER ROBINS -- About 870 Warner Robins voters cast early ballots this week in two City Council runoff elections, according to City Clerk Alton Mattox.
Early voting ended Friday in the Post 2 and Post 4 runoff races.
Any registered voters who have not yet cast their ballots may do so Tuesday at their regular polling places, which will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Polling locations are listed on the Warner Robins website, wrga.gov.
Runoffs were forced in two of the three City Council races after none of the five Post 2 or three Post 4 candidates won a majority vote in the Nov. 8 general election. Mike Davis, 58, won by a landslide to oust Post 6 Councilman John Williams.

Neither Councilman Tom Simms Jr. of Post 2 nor Councilman Bob Wilbanks of Post 4 sought re-election.
In the general election, Robbins soared to the top of the Post 2 results with 1,868 votes. Thomas came in behind her with 1,278 votes.
In the Post 4 race, Brashear won 471 votes to runner-up Harrington’s 302 votes.
About 1,390 residents voted early in the general election, according to Mattox.
