Early voting continues this week in the race for DeKalb County's District 4 Commission seat.
Commissioner Sharon Barnes Sutton faces challenger Steve Bradshaw in what both candidates said has been a very negative and divisive race.
Analysts say interest in the race could mean a slightly higher than usual voter turn-out in a mid-summer runoff election.
Barnes Sutton has mailed out flyers saying Bradshaw is not a true Democrat. Both candidates are African-American. Included on the Barnes-Sutton flyer is a photo of Bradshaw with his wife, who is white.
