In south Fulton County, there were two Georgia General Assembly seats up for grabs with contested races in the Nov. 3 general election, with one each in the House and Senate.

Though 100% of precincts are reporting, the results are still considered unofficial because they do not include all absentee and provisional ballots.

In the District 39 special election to replace Nikema Williams, who is running for District 5 U.S. House, Democrats Sonya Halpern and Linda Pritchett are heading to a Dec. 1 runoff after they received 45.24% and 25.56% of the vote, respectively. They were followed by fellow Democrats Jo Anna Potts (15.56%) and Zan Fort (13.63%).

In District 63, incumbent Democrat Debra Bazemore beat Republican David Callahan with 78.87%.

All other Legislature candidates were unopposed.
