CUMMING, Ga. — Parts of Forsyth County and North Fulton voted to elect Republican Sam Moore in the Georgia House District 22 runoff held Tuesday, Feb 4.
The runoff was a special election to replace state Rep. Calvin Hill, who succumbed to leukemia in 2013.
Moore beat out three candidates in the initial special election on Jan. 7, with 38 percent of the vote. However, special elections require at least a vote of 50 percent to win.
Businessman and Macedonia resident Moore beat Ball Ground resident and Creekview High School teacher Meagan Biello by 406 votes, 57.7 percent of the vote across the three counties.
About 64 percent of the 25 votes cast in Fulton County went to Moore as well as 74 percent of the 282 cast in Forsyth.
Cherokee County Elections Supervisor Janet Munda and Forsyth County Voter Registration and Elections Supervisor Barbara Luth said these numbers are good for a special election.
"They may seem low," Luth said, "but they're not."
Munda said the numbers were better than the original election on Jan. 7.
Luth said the District 22 seat impacts about 10,000 Forsyth County residents in three districts in the southwestern corner of the county.
The seat also impacts a small section of the Crabapple area in Milton.
On election night, Moore said that he is excited and wants to start working for the district right away.
The primary for the next election for the District 22 seat begins in May, and Biello said she would make a decision about running again soon.
