Eligible voters who did not vote in the primary can cast a ballot in the runoff, while those who cast a ballot in the primary must choose the same party's ballot for the runoff.
Those who venture to the polls on Tuesday will have fewer choices than during last month's primary, as only a handful of statewide races saw their top vote-getters fall short of earning more than half the ballots cast.
Locals who choose the Democratic ballot will have only one race to consider, as they will get to choose between Gail Buckner or Georganna Sinkfield for secretary of state. The winner will face Republican Brian Kemp in the general election.
Republican voters will determine who they want to see represent the party in the race for the state's top office, as Nathan Deal and Karen Handel are vying for the GOP's nomination for governor. Whomever emerges from the contest will face Democrat and former Gov. Roy Barnes in November.
Former State Sen. Preston Smith, R-Rome, whose District 52 seat included part of Bartow County, is seeking the GOP's attorney general nomination against Sam Olens. Ken Hodges earned the Democratic nomination for the position last month.
In other Republican races, voters will choose between Ralph T. Hudgens and Maria Sheffield for the Commissioner of Insurance nomination, with the winner to face Democrat Mary Squires. John Douglas and Tim Echols are the choices for Public Service Commissioner District 2; Keith Moffett will be the winner's Democratic opposition in the general election.
Republican voters in State House District 14 will choose between former Cherokee Judicial Circuit district attorney candidate Christian Coomer and fellow Cartersville attorney Shep Helton; the winner will face Democratic nominee Dan Ledford in November.
Only four votes separated the two GOP opponents in last month's primary, with Coomer's 1,982 votes giving him 39.5 percent of ballots cast to Helton's 39.4 percent. Also vying for the seat -- previously held by Barry Loudermilk, R-Cassville -- was Greg Bowen, who took 21.2 percent of the vote.
