Several statewide races are headed for a runoff election slated for Tuesday, June 21. Early voting remains open through Friday, June 17, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Board of Elections and Registration Office, located at 237 North Second Street, behind the Morgan County Citizen’s office.

Runoff elections occur when a single candidate does not achieve at least 50 percent of the vote. The top two candidates in a race then run again for a final victory.

On the runoff ballot, Georgia voters will decide the primary races for the District 10 U.S. House of Representatives, Georgia Lt. Governor, Georgia Secretary of State, Commissioner of Insurance and Fire Safety, and Commissioner of Labor.

Republicans Vernon Jones and Mike Collins will compete for the party’s nomination to run for the U.S. House of Representatives District 10. Democrats Jessica Allison Fore and Tabitha Johnson-Green will run for their party’s nomination to run for the U.S. House of Representatives District 10. The winners of the Republican and Democratic runoffs will face each other in the upcoming November Midterm Election.

Democrats Kwanza Hall and Charlie Bailey will compete for their party’s nomination to run for Georgia Lt. Governor. The winner will run against Republican Burt Jones in the November Midterm Election.

Democrats Bee Nguyen and Dee Dawkins-Haigler will compete for their party’s nomination to run for Georgia Secretary of State. The winner will run against Incumbent Republican Brad Raffensperger.

Democrats Janice Laws Robinson and Raphael Baker will vie for their party’s nomination to run for Commissioner of Insurance and Fire Safety. The winner will face Republican John King in November.

Democrats Nicole Horn and William Boddie will compete for their party’s nomination to run for Commissioner of Labor. The winner will face Republican Bruce Thompson.

Early voting hours will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Friday, June 17. All early voting is done at the Morgan County Board of Elections and Registration office, located at 237 North Second Street in Madison, behind the Morgan County Citizen’s office.

On election day, Tuesday, June 21, all voters must cast ballots at their assigned precinct location. The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
