Early voting got underway Tuesday in Kingsland, Georgia, where voters are electing a mayor and three city council members as well as deciding two referendums that would affect future elections.
The first referendum asks voters to decide how many votes a candidate needs to win. Under the current plurality system, the candidate with the most votes wins.
But a proposed switch to a simple majority would mean a winning candidate would need 50 percent of the votes cast plus one more. Without a majority, the top-2 vote-getters would face each other in a runoff.
