Early voting for Senate District 32 race begins May 6 in Sandy Springs

Voters in north Fulton County will be able to cast ballots as early as May 6 for the runoff election to fill Judson Hill’s state Senate seat.

The North Fulton Service Center at 7741 Roswell Road in Sandy Springs will be home to the lone early voting polling place for the District 32 election.

Early voting will be available Saturday, May 6 through Friday, May 12 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

POLITICS: Karen Handel won 8 precincts — and they were all in N. Fulton

Hill vacated his seat to run in the special congressional election to fill Tom Price’s seat. Despite being backed by Marco Rubio and Newt Gingrich, the former state senator finished fifth in that election with just 8.8 percent of the vote.

The two District 32 candidates competing in the runoff for Hill’s seat are Christine Triebsch, a Democrat and an attorney, and Kay Kirkpatrick, a Republican and retired orthopedic surgeon. In a race that included eight candidates, Triebsch garnered 24.2 percent of the vote, while Kirkpatrick pulled in 21.1 percent.
