Runoff election to be held July 22, early voting to start on June 30 – : Local

A runoff election is being held on July 22 to determine two races in Polk County, and early voting for the next round will start on June 30.

Director of Elections Karen Garmon said the election is required to determine the winners in the United States Senate Republican primary between U.S. Representative Jack Kingston and David Perdue, and locally in the nonpartisan Tallapoosa Circuit Superior Court Judge race, with Haralson County attorney Meng Lim and Polk County Juvenile Court judge Chuck Morris.

Lim, who held a wide majority over Morris, Vickey Atkins and Andrew Roper in Haralson County, failed to get the votes he needed in Polk County to win the race outright with a majority. Meng carried a final tally of 35.9 percent of the overall vote, with Morris garnering 28 percent of the vote. Atkins took 21 percent of the vote and Roper 14 percent.
