Polls are open Tuesday for four special elections.

Two state Senate seats and one state House seat are vacant in the Georgia General Assembly as a result of resignations last month. Another Senate seat is open from an earlier resignation, but those voters have already narrowed the candidate list to two.

Voters have until 7 p.m. to cast ballots in Colquitt, Decatur, Early, Grady, Miller, Seminole and portions of Mitchell and Thomas counties for a crowded Senate District 11 race.

Portions of Cherokee and Fulton counties are filling the Senate District 21 seat. That one will be decided today with only two candidates. Fulton voters also must fill the empty House slot.

Voters in Senate District 30 in western Georgia will close out the special election process Tuesday, choosing between Libertarian James Camp and Republican Mike Dugan.

A list of candidates and information about your polling place is at the Georgia Secretary of State’s website.
