With the secretary of state’s website posting the complete results of the June 9 primary election June 23, any races that were undecided on Election Night have been finalized, with some heading to runoffs Aug. 11.
The results were delayed because about 1 million Georgia voters cast absentee ballots that had to be scanned in the process of counting them.
Here’s a rundown of those races in three metro Atlanta counties:
DeKalb County’s five runoffs were made official when the state’s complete results came in.
In the District 86 Georgia House of Representatives campaign, incumbent Michele Henson (41.18%) and Zulma Lopez (29.76%) are heading to a runoff in the Democratic primary after leading a field that included Ladena Bolton (18.67%) and Jocelyn O’Neal (10.39%). The winner will be unopposed in November.
Two county board of commissioners’ races are heading to runoffs. In District 1, Democrats Cynthia Yaxon (34.26%) and Robert Patrick (33.28%) advanced after outpacing M.D. Nasar (23.23%) and Ben Truman (9.23%). The winner faces incumbent Republican Nancy Jester, who was unopposed in the primary.
In District 6, Ted Terry (37.62%) and Maryam Ahmad (34.63%) moved on to a runoff after leading a three-candidate field that included Emily Halevy (27.75%). The winner will be unopposed in November.
The District 3 nonpartisan county board of education race is also heading to a runoff after Deirdre Pierce (42.26%) and Willie R. Mosley Jr. (27.22%) outpaced David Manuel (17.25%) and Kevin Alexander (13.03%).
Finally, in the nonpartisan Superior Court judge race to replace incumbent Clarence Seeliger, who is retiring, Yolanda C. Parker-Smith (45.34%) and Melinda “Mindy” Pillow (18.96%) advanced to a runoff after defeating Vincent Crawford (15.38%), Roderick Bridges (13.57%), Aaron Chausmer (6.48%).
Fulton County’s District 65 Georgia House of Representatives race was the only Fulton County runoff not fully known based on partial results.
In that race, incumbent Sharon Beasley-Teague (49.20%) and Mandisha Thomas (36.55%) are heading to a Democratic runoff after leading a three-candidate campaign that also included Amber Doss-Hunter (14.25%), with the winner unopposed in November.
They will join candidates in four other Fulton runoffs already determined the week of the election. In the district attorney campaign, Fani Willis (42.27%) and incumbent Paul Howard Jr. (34.78%) are headed to the runoff after outpacing Christian Wise Smith (22.95%), with the winner unopposed in November.
In the sheriff’s race, incumbent Ted Jackson (44.12%) and Pat Labat (23.17%) are bound for a Democratic runoff after leading a field that also included Myron Freeman (17.64%), Walter Calloway (9.13%) and Charles Rambo (5.95%). The winner will be unopposed in November.
Tamika Hrobowski-Houston (33.47%) and Melynee Leftridge Harris (32.30%) are in a Superior Court judge runoff after beating Ashley Baker Osby (20.22%) and Lizz Kuhn (14.02%) in the battle to replace Constance Russell, who is not seeking reelection.
Finally, in the nonpartisan District 4 Fulton Board of Education race, Franchesca Warren (37.35%) and Sandra Wright (35.34%) are in a runoff to replace member Linda Bryant, who is not seeking reelection. Willie Davis Jr. finished third in the primary with 27.31%.
Paulding County’s three runoffs were made official when the state’s complete results came in.
In the District 14 U.S. House of Representatives race to replace Tom Graves, who is retiring, Republicans Marjorie Taylor Greene (40.34%) and John Cowan (21.01%) are heading to a runoff. They advanced against a field that included John Barge (8.84%), Clayton Fuller (6.83%), Bill Hembree (6.42%), Kevin Cooke (6.16%), Matt Laughridge (5.72%), Ben Bullock (3.57%) and Andy Gunther (1.12%). In November the winner will face Democrat Kevin Van Ausdal, who was unopposed in the primary.
There are two runoffs in the Georgia Senate campaigns. In District 30, Democrats Triana Arnold James (41.63%) and Montenia Edwards (37.66%) advanced after outpacing Afoma Eguh-Okafor (20.71%). In November the winner will face incumbent Republican Mike Dugan, who was unopposed in the primary.
In District 31, Republicans Boyd Austin (40.30%) and Jason Anivitarte (35.99%) advanced to a runoff in a field that included Bobby Mehan (15.92%) and Bobby Wilson (7.80%). In November the winner will face Democrat Tianna Smith, who was unopposed in the primary.
In other Paulding election news, in the county board of commissioners’ chair campaign, after incumbent Dave Carmichael edged Bill Carruth in the Republican primary with 50.67% of the vote, Carruth asked for a recount June 16 after losing by only 288 votes.
But Deidra Holden, supervisor of Paulding’s board of elections and voter registration, said Carruth didn’t qualify for a recount because, according to state law, a second-place candidate must be within one half of 1% of the winning candidate’s vote percentage.
“Because of the percentage difference, he was not eligible for the recount,” she said.
In November Carmichael will face Democrat Taurus Madric Morris, who was unopposed in the primary.
