VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –  Georgia Supreme Court Justice David Nahmias is in a runoff to retain his seat. He's urging you to get out and vote Tuesday.

Nahmias made a campaign stop in Valdosta Monday. He was a federal prosecutor for 15 years. He says he's fair, impartial, and has a proven track record for enforcing the law.

Nahmias was appointed by Governor Sonny Perdue when Leah Ward Sears retired last year. He says voters should be concerned about this race because having a high quality high court is important for Georgia.

"If judges write good opinions and make the law clear and consistent it allows people to not have to go to court as much they can make sure they're following the law as opposed to having to litigate their way through the system to figure out what the laws are going to be."

Justice Nahmias faces attorney Tammy Adkins. There's also a Court of Appeals runoff and a handful of local runoff races around south Georgia. The polls are open from 7AM to 7PM.
