About Today's Vote


Information about today's election

What's on the ballot?

You may request a Democratic or a Republican ballot, and depending on which you select, you will have some different choices that include Congressional primaries, school board elections, and State and County Judicial races:

—All voters will have an opportunity to vote on T-SPLOST. Those who live in the Skyland and Warren Tech precincts will also get to vote in the City of Brookhaven referendum.

—Voters in DeKalb County who choose a Republican ballot will get to weigh in on my opponent in the general election as well as the contested race for DeKalb County Commission District 1.

—Voters in DeKalb County who choose a Democratic ballot will get to vote in the contested races for DeKalb County CEO, DeKalb County Commission District 6, and the 6th Congressional District. I do not have an opponent in this election but will have an opponent in November.

— Republican and Democratic ballots each include non-binding questions that allow you to express opinions about a range of issues.

My first meet-and-greet:
Over the next few months, several of your neighbors will be hosting a series of meet-and-greets where you can come and chat with me and share your concerns about our district and our state. I will also share with you my priorities for the next legislative session.
