Colquitt County District One Special Election Results
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.
