After all of the votes were counted and the results were finalized from the Georgia General Primary Election held on June 9, several races did not have a candidate who won the majority of the vote. Under Georgia law, candidates in a particular race must receive more than 50% of all of the votes for that particular race or they must face a runoff election in order to receive the majority vote.
Georgia’s Primary election runoff is scheduled for August 11 while early voting is currently underway until 7 p.m. on Friday, August 7 at four locations in Gwinnett County. Click here for a list of locations.
The winners of the primary runoffs will advance to the General Election on November 3, 2020.
