General Primary Election Runoff is Tuesday, June 21, 2022

Georgia voters will be asked in June to head back to the polls for a runoff vote to choose candidates for Federal, state, and local representation on the November 8 General Election ballot. All voters are encouraged to take the time to research candidates running for office and ask them questions about their policy strategies and priorities. To participate in the June 21 Runoff for the General Primary, you must have been registered to vote by May 23, 2022.


Learn About the Candidates' Priorities

Many different media outlets and nonprofit groups equip voters with tools and background to assist in making informed choices by providing information on political candidates, including general qualifications and an assessment of each candidate’s understanding of and commitment to key issues facing the community at large. Search online for information from trusted sources.
