Preferential Primary Uncertified Election Results

For the past 10-12 months candidates have pounded the pavement and spent a great deal of money on their campaigns. In the end, it was up to the voters to have their say in who the winners would be.

There was one particularly close race in the Preferential Primary, State Representative District 21. Incumbent, Representative Marcus Richmond took the win with only 59 votes.

There will also be a run-off in the race for Circuit Judge District 12, Division 6 with candidates Greg Magness and Rita Howard Watkins.
