ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  There will be quite a few runoff races for state offices following Tuesday's elections.

If you didn't vote in the Primary, you can still vote in the runoff election on August 10th on either the Democratic or Republican ticket.

If you did vote, you'll have to stick with the same party for the runoff.

"You're still eligible if you did not cast a ballot, you would still be eligible to choose a party and vote in this election August 10th." said Elections Supervisor Ginger Nickerson.

On the GOP ticket, the nominees for Governor, Commissioner of Insurance,  Public Service Commissioner District 2, and Attorney General will be decided in the runoff.

As for the Democrats--Secretary of State and Commissioner of Labor races will be on the runoff ballot.

Only 22% of registered voters statewide voted Tuesday. In Dougherty County, the numbers were slightly higher, around 25%.

Runoff numbers are expected to be significantly lower.
