When is the Georgia special election to replace U.S. Rep. Tom Price?

Voters in metro Atlanta’s 6th Congressional District cast ballots April 18 – and now must return for a June runoff – to choose a replacement for Republican Tom Price, who joined the Trump Administration in early February as secretary of health and human services.

Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff, the top two finishers on April 18, will now meet in a June 20 runoff to choose the winner.
