This Week in GeorgiaGov: Elections
With the resignations of state senators John Bulloch and Chip Rogers last week, voters from District 11 and District 21 will head back to the polls on January 8 to fill those vacancies. District 21 Representative Sean Jerguson, who is running for his district's now open senate seat, also put in his resignation last week.
During the last legislative session, the Georgia General Assembly passed Senate Bill 37, a bill that this election will allow voters to decide whether state agencies can enter multi-year lease agreements.
More than 1.6 million voters sent in advance ballots and headed to the polls for yesterday's general primary, one that saw the defeat of the T-SPLOST and the approval of Sunday liquor sales in select counties.
After a tally of votes from yesterday's general election runoff, Mike Dugan leads Bill Hembree in the special Republican primary for the state senate seat open in District 30. Currently claiming close to 56 percent of the vote, Dugan will go on to face Libertarian James Camp on January 8.
