Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp certified last Tuesday's run-off election, which Scot Turner won with 60 percent of the vote.
The two candidates in the Feb. 5 run off for the Georgia House District 21 seat faced off in a debate Tuesday night sponsored by the Cherokee County Republican Party.
After he was pulled over for running a stop sign, Laurens called Mayor Tim Downing to ask how he can have stop signs removed from entrances to a roundabout in his neighborhood.
Voters in the Georgia House District 21 seat will vote in the Feb. 5 run-off.
Officials initially predicted a 5 percent turnout, but numbers were closer to 10 percent.
In unofficial vote totals posted on the Georgia Secretary of State's website, low voter turnout is easy to see even in early returns.
In unofficial results, Brandon Beach leads former State Rep. Sean Jerguson in the State Senate race while the State House race heads to a run-off.
Voters in the Georgia House District 21 and Georgia Senate District 21 will choose between candidates vying for both seats.
Senate District 21 candidate Sean Jerguson is a party to a case in which he and several others have allegedly defaulted on a loan totaling more than $600,000.
Beach did not refund campaign donations he received in 2010, a violation of state law.
