VALDOSTA, GA - Tuesday's runoff election in Lowndes and Clinch counties broke records.

There was huge voter turnout in Clinch County where 63% of registered voters cast ballots.

Nearly 2200 people voted, about 300 more than cast ballots in the primary.

More people turned out for the run-off election in Lowndes County as well. Elections supervisors believe that high profile sheriff's races brought out the voters.

"In this election, personal contact and knowledge of the candidates did it. Very hot race, a lot interest generated which resulted in a big turnout," says Lowndes County Election Supervisor Deb Cox.

Both counties expect a larger turnout in November.
