Republicans were victorious in all three of Tuesday’s special elections for seats in the state House and Senate.
In the 11th state Senate district — spanning areas of southwest Georgia — Republican Dean Burke won 58 percent of votes over Republican Mike Keown's 41.
In the 21st state House of Representatives district — which spans part of Cherokee County in north Georgia — Republican Scot Turner won 61 percent of votes over Republican Brian Laurens who won 38 percent.
The six-way race for the 71st state House of Representatives district — in Coweta County— featured five Republicans and a Democrat. Republican David Stover won 42 percent of votes and Republican Thomas Crymes placed a distant second with just under 20 percent of the votes.
Tuesday night's unofficial results don't include provisional ballots.
