Waffle House co-founder dies a month after his partner

Can you vote in the 6th district special election?


Today’s special election for Georgia’s 6th congressional district is just for those voters who live in parts of Cobb, Fulton and DeKalb counties. 

Here’s a map of the district. If you don’t live within the red borders, you don’t get to vote in this election to succeed Tom Price in the House of Representatives.

A field of 18 candidates is running in the special election to fill the seat that  opened when Tom Price vacated it to become President Donald Trump’s secretary of health and human services. With such a large number of candidates, a runoff is almost certain. It would be held June 20.

Georgia 6th Congressional District election: Candidates running to replace Tom Price

Bob Gray, Karen Handel, Judson Hill, Dan Moody and Jon Ossoff are the candidates who have climbed above the the low single digits in various polls.

If you do live in the district and need to know where to vote, use the Secretary of State Office’s online “my voter page” website to find your regular precinct.
