The seat in Georgia’s 68th State House District is vacant after Democratic Rep. Tish Naghise passed away during her first term. The 65th District lies just south of Atlanta in Fayette and Fulton Counties. Five Democrats ran to fill this vacancy back on May 16, but none achieved a 50+1 majority of the vote, so the top two finishers advanced to today’s runoff election. Polls close at 7 p.m. EDT. We will have the election results below once they do.
