With a decent dump *finally* from Fulton County, Ossoff falls to 48.6%. 177 precincts are in out of 210.

Update: 4/18/2017 10:38PM

Fulton County is *slow*. We're expecting a precinct dump from there soon. With the other two counties more or less all in, Ossoff is at 50.3%. Seems clear he drops into the 40s, but the question is how far.

Update: 4/18/2017 9:41PM

Almost all of Cobb in, and Ossoff is down to 50.8%.

Update: 4/18/2017 9:39PM

The totals have been pretty static for the last few minutes, but with just under 100K votes counted, Ossoff is standing at 54% with Handel a distantt but clear second, at 18%.

Update: 4/18/2017 9:07PM

Overall in DeKalb County, Ossoff at 58.4% with 67% in. HRC got 57% there last fall.

With the early vote reporting in Cobb County (the most GOP-friendly county in the district, which voted for Trump by 11%), Ossoff is at 57%.

Update: 4/18/2017 7:51PM

Almost an hour in, and the early vote we have from DeKalb County is strong for Ossoff. He's at 71%, with Handel next at 11%, and Moody with 9%.

Update: 4/18/2017 7:10PM

Polls have been closed in GA-06 for about ten minutes now. Still waiting on results to trickle in.

Update: 4/18/2017 3:08PM

We are not running a "percent of precincts reporting" because of the number of early votes and the unknowns with the share they'll represent. So, as tallies come in, keep this range of anticipated total votes in mind: 140,000 to 165,000.

Update: 4/18/2017 12:00AM

And now with the Fulton County early vote, Ossoff is at 61% there.

Race Preview

Note: any data appearing on this page before 7pm EDT 4/18/2017 is for testing purposes only.

The most competitive special Congressional election yet has arrived, and we will be providing returns live tonight right here. In addition to our district-wide totals, we will be analyzing county and precinct level returns. For the Democrats, the hope is that Jon Ossoff can pull out an outright win tonight- if he gets over 50% of the vote in this crowded field, he’s in as the district’s new Representative in Congress. If he falls short, then he will face off against one of four likely Republican opponents in a runoff on June 20th: Karen Handel, Bob Gray, Judson Hill, or Dan Moody. Polls close at 7pm and we anticipate at least early vote tallies to begin rolling in shortly thereafter. Refresh this page for the latest results tonight out of Georgia.
