Qualifying Candidates & Election Schedule

ElectionButton

Update 9/24/2019

Upcoming Candidate Forums from the Council Chambers/Courtroom will be broadcast live on Channel 7 and also will be inserted into the rebroadcast schedule. We try to make videos available at least once overnight, one morning, one afternoon, and one evening on weekdays, and again at similar times over each weekend. Following the election, these videos will be deleted from the schedule.

The "Conversation Between Two Mayors" recording is playing in the Channel 7 schedule and is also available at https://cityoftybee.viebit.com. Although not technically a part of the election process itself, the sharing of Mayors Buelterman and Parker provide some background and humor as it relates to the Mayor's office on Tybee.

  • Tuesday: 1:30 PM
