GUNTOWN – The town’s polling place will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. today for Guntown voters to elect a new alderman.

Voting will be conducted at the Community Center in Guntown park.

Eight people are seeking the at-large seat formerly held by Harold Allen, who died in March. The winner will fill the unexpired term, which will run through June 2001.

If none of the candidates gets a majority of the votes cast today, then a runoff between the top two finishers will be conducted May 18.
