Scamihorn, along with Post 7 Republican incumbent Brad Wheeler, did not face primary opposition. Wheeler will face Democratic challenger Lindsay Terrebonne, who had no opposition, in the November election. Post 7 represents parts of west Cobb.
Democrat Leroy “Tre” Hutchins faced no opposition in the primary for the Post 3 race. With no Republican challenger in the general election, Hutchins is the school board member-elect for the seat. He will replace longtime board member David Morgan, who did not seek re-election. That seat encompasses parts of south Cobb.
Cobb residents should note that the current results reflect the tally from voters who cast ballots on Election Day and during the early voting period. The county said Wednesday that the majority of absentee ballots, which were either mailed in or dropped off, have not been counted. Elections staff are working on tallying the results about 70,000 of those absentee ballots.
