The race for Colquitt County Clerk of Court heats up over flyers. / Moultrie Observer

One local election is heating up before the polls have even opened.

The race for Colquitt County Clerk of Court has gone postal after a questionable flyer came out stirring up concern and several questions.

According to the Moultrie Observer, the flyer which has incumbent clerk of court, Lynn Purvis' photo on it, with a giant circle and 'X' through the middle was handed out throughout the area this past week.

Her opponent, Shannon Hart, says they've sent out flyers, but not the ones which regarded as, "offensive."

With the flyer traced back to a mailing address that is no longer active, many are still wondering where the anonymous flyer came from and what affect it will have on the race.
