Low Turnout Expected for Runoffs
Amid stormy weather, every vote truly will count in Tuesday balloting.
A seat on the Cobb State Court will be settled Tuesday as Cobb voters will find three runoff races on their ballots.
But turnout, never good for runoffs, figures to be further plagued by bad weather.
Only judicial races remain after November's general elections. (Attached is a PDF of the Cobb sample ballot.)
In the only local race on the Cobb ballot, State Court prosecutor Jason Fincher, a West Cobb resident, is competing against defense attorney Angela Brown of Kennesaw. The winner will succeed retiring Judge Nancy Campbell.
Incumbent Georgia Supreme Court Justice David Nahmias is in a runoff with Lawrenceville lawyer Tammy Adkins, who did not actively campaign during the general election. She received 32 percent of the vote compared with 48 percent garnered by Nahmias.
Nahmias, a former federal prosecutor appointed to the court last year, has received a lengthy list of endorsements from statewide political leaders, including East Cobb resident and Attorney General-elect Sam Olens.
On Monday, Olens, the former chairman of the Cobb Board of Commissioners, reiterated his endorsement of Nahmias on Twitter.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Election results will be posted Tuesday night on the Cobb elections website.
