Republican Mitchell Kaye and Democrat James Dustin McCormick are ahead in the unofficial tally in the special election to occupy the remainder of Matt Dollar’s term in Georgia state House District 45.

Dollar resigned from the seat in this East Cobb district to take a job with the Technical College System of Georgia.

The table below are the results posted to the Cobb County elections website by 7:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. They are not the official tally. The results will only be official after the Cobb County Board of Elections and Registration certifies them on Monday April 11.

Since it’s mathematically unlikely that changes in the tallies will change the first and second place positions, the likelihood is that the May 3, 2022 runoff for this seat will be between Republican Kaye and Democrat McCormick.

Dollar’s term would have ended at the end of this year, so whoever wins the election ultimately will only serve for about seven months.

The general election to decide who will serve HD-45 for the first full term after Dollar’s resignation will take place November 8 of this year.
