Runoff for GA House District 45
The RUNOFF ELECTION in the House District 45 election is Tuesday, May 3. Voters who would normally vote at the East Cobb Government Center as their assigned election day poll will be voting at the Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church on May 3.
Background on the HD-45 special election
Republican Mitchell Kaye and Democrat James Dustin McCormick will face off in the special election runoff 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.
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.
