ATLANTA – Voters statewide will return to the polls Nov. 30 to decide a pair of races – the state’s Supreme Court justice and an appeals court post.
In the Supreme Court race, David Nahmias topped the field of three and picked up 48.2 percent of the vote. Tammy Lynn Adkins came in second with 35.2 percent.
In Georgia, a candidate needs a majority of the vote – “50 percent plus one” – to avoid a runoff.
Nahmias, a former federal prosecutor in Atlanta, was appointed to the Supreme Court in August 2009. Adkins is a family attorney in Lawrenceville.
In the Appeals Court race, Antoinette “Toni” Davis led a crowded field with 25.5 percent of the vote. Chris McFadden came in second with 22.6 percent of the vote.
Other races to be decided on Nov. 30:
