Polls across Georgia are open until 7 p.m. today for the runoff elections that will decide some key statewide races, including who will be the Republican nominee to face Democrat Stacey Abrams in the governor’s race in November.
Chattooga County voters must vote in their assigned precincts to cast a ballot.
On the Republican ticket, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and Secretary of State Brian Kemp are fighting for the Georgia Governor’s position. The winner will face Democrat Abrams. President Donald Trump has endorsed Kemp, while current governor Nathan Deal is endorsing Cagle.
While the governor’s race is drawing the most attention, it’s not the only decision to be made this election. There is a runoff election for Republican lieutenant governor. It’s between Geoff Duncan and David Shafer. There is also a runoff for secretary of state. It’s between David Belle Isle and Brad Raffensperger.
On the Democratic side, there is only one run-off race. Sid Chapman and Otha E. Thornton Jr. are seeking the state school superintendent’s post.
