This information is courtesy of the Fannin County Democratic Party. I appreciate their compiling it. Please make due allowances for the sarcasm if you are of a different political persuasion. There is some good information here that isn’t easy to find elsewhere.
Please note that one of the oddities of the Georgia system is that if you voted, you must request the same party’s ballot for the runoff. However, if you did not vote, you can request either ballot for the runoff.
We wanted to provide an update to the Primary 2022 election. Further detailed state-wide results may be viewed by clicking here.
