On Tuesday March 20, Colquitt County had a District One Special Election due to the death of one former commissioner.

Back in January, seven candidates put their hats into the ring to serve less than a year of the unexpired Colquitt County Commission term of the late Luke Strong Jr.

The results are as followed:

  • Jeron Bridges received 5% of votes with 16
  • Darius Dawson received 20.5% of votes with 57
  • Barbara Lewis Jelks received 32% of votes with 90
  • Susie Magwood-Thomas received 19% with 53 votes
  • William Pittman Junior received 1% with 4 votes
  • James Weeks received 15% with 42 votes
  • Stacey Williams received 5.7% with 16 votes
  • All are listed as Democrats

Because neither Barbara Lewis Jelks or Darius Dawson received over 50% plus one vote or more, a runoff between the two will be held on April 17.

There were 278 votes in total.
