Special Democratic primary for Georgia State Senate District 39 set for November 3

A new state legislative special election has been added to our list. The special election is for the District 39 seat in the Georgia State Senate. Only Democratic Party candidates may file because no Republican filed for the seat in the 2020 regular election. The incumbent, Nikema Williams (D), withdrew from the regular election after receiving her party’s nomination in the primary. The special Democratic primary is on November 3, 2020, and the primary runoff is scheduled for December 1 if no candidate wins a majority of the primary vote. The filing deadline is on September 4.
