Voters line up Tuesday at the Hammond Park Gymnasium in Sandy Springs to vote in the 6th Congressional District special election. 

Republican Karen Handel beat Democrat Jon Ossoff in the 6th Congressional District race Tuesday night, becoming Georgia’s first female Republican member of the U.S. House.

What would usually be a tame special election in an historically red section of the Atlanta suburbs brought obscene amounts of national attention and dollars.

You can see how voters at each precinct, likely still drying out after an all-day deluge, cast their ballots using a tool The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has developed to view the initial numbers.

Unofficial results on the Georgia Secretary of State’s elections website show that 78,458 Cobb residents voted at the county’s 50 precincts, with Handel getting about 58 percent of the county’s votes.

Handel told Channel 2's Richard Elliot that she wants to earn the respect of Ossoff supporters.
