Here are the latest results from the March 24 General Primary in Clayton County. Please reload your browser for up-to-the-minute numbers. There is a lag between the time that elections officials count the results and when they send the update to the statewide system. As the evening progresses, final results may be delayed while elections officials wait for a precinct’s votes to arrive at the counting site. Those votes are transported by an Elections and Registration official and law enforcement.

The terms “undervote” and “overvote” refer to the difference between the total number of votes possible and the number of votes actually cast. For example, if a voter chooses not to vote to protest a candidate who is running unopposed, but casts votes in the other races on their ballot, the unopposed candidate’s totals would reflect an undervote. Conversely, an overvote happens when a voter chooses two candidates in a race where they are only allowed to choose one. In that case, the voter’s choices for the overvoted race would be thrown out, but any other races voted with the correct number of choices would still count.

Please page through the table for full results as they come in. You also can scroll from side to side in the table. You may want to turn your phone sideways to view the table.
