Voting gets underway Tuesday for Georgia's runoff elections, which will settle two statewide races in which neither party won a majority of the vote in the Nov. 6 general election.

The contests up for grabs are secretary of state and public service commission. During the general election, Libertarian Party candidates won more than 2 percent of the vote in each race, denying their opponents an outright win.

For secretary of state, Democrat John Barrow faces Republican Brad Raffensperger. The winner will succeed Secretary of State Robyn Crittenden, who was appointed by Gov. Nathan Deal to replace Gov.-elect Brian Kemp.

In the contest for Public Service Commission District 3, incumbent Republican Chuck Eaton is opposed by Democrat Lindy Miller.

To find voting locations, voters can check with their county election offices. Contact information for local election offices can be found through the secretary of state's website at elections.sos.ga.gov/Elections/countyelectionoffices.do.

All registered voters are eligible to participate in the runoff election, even if they didn't cast ballots Nov. 6. The voter registration deadline for this year's election was Oct. 9.
