Incumbents have the built in advantage in elections but challengers -have- knocked off sitting Augusta commissioners over the years.
Of course that depends on the attitudes of the voters.
Is this year a change election with a throw the bums out mind set?
Or are voters more content with the status quo, and to stay the course.
We caught up with two early voters today to find out how they feel.
I think everything is working find I don’t think there needs to be no change,” said voter Robert Huff.
“So you like the status quo?’
“I’m satisfied keep the good work going,” Huff said.
‘The way my feeling make on this stay the course how come, everything seems to be doing pretty good, at this point just stay the course,” said James Johnson.
Voters are also deciding two commission races where the incumbent is term limited.
District 8 is somewhat surprising where Commissioner Wayne Guilfoyle is leaving Brandon Garrett is running unopposed.
But in District 10 there’s a contest, as John Clarke is facing Doctor Lori Myles.
