Voters in Georgia House District 34 have today left to cast their ballots. It’s the official election day in the runoff to decide between Democrat Priscilla Smith and Republican Devan Seabaugh.

The results of the runoff will determine who will fill the Kennesaw-area seat left vacant by the resignation of Republican Bert Reeves, who resigned to take a job at his alma mater, Georgia Tech.

As of the election last fall, when Smith challenged then-incumbent Reeves, the long-time Republican majority held, with Reeves netting a commanding 56 percent of the vote.

But like every district in Cobb, the Democratic share of the vote has been steadily increasing. In 2014 there was no Democratic challenger, and in 2016 Reeves defeated Democrat Justin Holsomback with just under 64 percent of the vote.
