Georgia Primary Election: Results and how our Animal Welfare Slate performed!

Share on Twitter: RT @seprr: GA Primary Election Results are in. #gapolitics #petrescue

The votes are in and the count is mostly complete.

All current results are here on the Secretary of State's official results page.

Use the Discussion Page to post any candidates you know about who do support Animal Welfare in Georgia. Be sure to include their District, web page, and anything of note they do to protect Animals in Georgia. 

Conversely, if you know of a politician who is actively opposed to reasonable reforms, such as J.B. Powell (Dept of Ag Candidate) or Mark Butler (Dept of Labor Candidate), please ACCURATELY state your opinion and provide as much evidence as possible to increase the credibility of the criticism.

Note to Newbies: This is a primary election. This means each office can have two winners, one for each of the two parties, Republican and Democrat. Other parties in Georgia do not participate in the Primary Election.
