Less than 1 percent of Georgia’s registered voters have cast an early ballot for tomorrow’s primary. But, Despite much interest, the non partisan judicial elections are drawing endorsements.

Statewide only about 46 thousand people have cast ballots in the runoff for 2 judicial races. One on the State Appeals court and one on the Georgia Supreme Court.

Turnout is so far heaviest in Columbus and Athens, where mayoral races also need to be decided. UGA political Scientist Charles Bullock says of note is the number of women on the ballots there.

"If you go to the ballot box and favor women in Public Office, you can voter for a woman for mayor, a woman for the Supreme Court and a woman for the Court of Appeals," Bullock says.

A group of Democrats called "Georgia Women Vote" is pushing for Supreme Court candidate Tammy Adkins, while the Georgia Chamber of commerce paid for a rob call to conservative voters in support of Incumbent David Nahmias.
