Early voting for two Gainesville City Commission races started Friday, March 5, and will end Saturday, March 13. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the city hopes to see a higher voter turnout and more mail-in ballots this year. Two candidates qualified in each city commission race: District 1 incumbent Gigi Simmons will face Desmon Duncan-Walker, and for the at-large seat, incumbent Gail Johnson will face Gabe Kaimowitz.
