Tuesday is election day in Georgia as voters will be going to the polls for a runoff election that will decide many local races and also the premier matchup between John Cowan and Marjorie Taylor Greene for the Republican ticket in Georgia's 14th Congressional District race.

There are runoff elections in 94 of Georgia's 153 counties on Tuesday. In Northwest Georgia, county commission seats will be on the ballot in Walker, Catoosa and Chattooga counties.

The sheriff is on the ballot in Murray County, and a few school board seats will also be on the ballot in some counties.

However, the main event Tuesday will be the runoff between Greene and Cowan to be the Republican nominee to replace outgoing U.S. Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ranger. The two Republican candidates have been busy on the campaign trail and the race has gotten rather personal over the last two weeks. The winner will face Democratic nominee Kevin Van Ausdal in November, although the GOP nominee is likely to win as the district is heavily Republican.

Polls will be open starting at 7 a.m. and will close at 7 p.m. Voters who are in line as polls close do not have to get out of line and will still be able to vote.

All voters who voted or were registered for the June 9 primary will be able to vote in the runoff election. To check voter status, visit the Secretary of State's My Voter Page.
