Albany  -- Georgians head back to the polls November 23rd to decide a runoff for a seat on the state Court of Appeals. Howard Mead is facing Debra Bernes in the only statewide run off Tuesday.

Mead flew to several cities around the state, including Albany, for final day campaigning.  An Atlanta lawyer and former counsel to Governors Zell Miller and Roy Barnes, Mead said the race has been a long and difficult fight. "It's been three elections over the course of the last five months, and we had three months of campaigning before that. It's been a long, long eight months. I'm glad it's going to be over tomorrow, but I think it's going to have been worth it."

Turnout for Tuesday's election is expected to be low. State election officials estimate it will cost at least one million dollars to hold this runoff election.
