DeKalb County, GA — Polls have closed in the May 24 Georgia primary elections.

Decaturish will be posting election results here throughout the evening.

Here are the races we are following. In races where a candidate does not achieve 50% of the vote, there will be a runoff election on June 21.

There will be three notable local runoff elections on the June 21 ballot. The District 2 DeKalb School Board race is headed to a runoff between Whitney McGinnis and Candice McKinley. The District 6 DeKalb School Board race is close, but it looks like incumbent Diijon DaCosta will be in a runoff with Janet Hughes. In the DeKalb County Commission District 2 race, Marshall Orson — who is currently the District 2 rep on the DeKalb School Board — will be in a runoff with Lauren Alexander for the seat currently held by Jeff Rader.

Results of the county commission and school board races as of 12:30 a.m., May 25.



Other results we’re following as of 12:30 a.m.
