Today, March 7, marked the fifth and final day of qualifying for the May 20 federal, state and local elections.

 

Highlights of the race include former Lithonia City Council member Doreen Carter entering the race for Georgia’s Secretary of State. Carter, who is President of the Greater Lithonia Chamber of Commerce, filed qualifying papers just minutes before the noon deadline, posting her candidacy on both, Facebook and Twitter.
