Tuesday is Georgia’s primary runoff election.
With the marquee races of governor and U.S. Senate settled in the primary, turnout is not expected to be nearly as high — and there were only five fays of early voting in advance of Tuesday’s election.
Notably, more than 850,000 Georgians cast an in-person ballot or returned an absentee ballot in the weeks before last month’s primary. It’s more than double the number of Georgians who voted in the primary two years ago.
As the votes are counted Tuesday evening, you’ll be able to watch the results as they come in by following this link.
Casting a ballot Tuesday? Polls are open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. You’ll need to bring a valid photo ID such as a driver’s license, passport or voter identification card. You can go to My Voter Page on the Secretary of State’s website to confirm your voting status, verify your current address, see a sample ballot and find your specific polling place.

Georgia Lieutenant Governor – Democrat
