Candidate qualifying for the November 2022 General Election ended on March 11, 2022. Democrats and Republicans who have opponents in their own party will run in primary races on May 24, 2022.
Why are primary elections important?
- Primary elections give you, the voter, the opportunity to decide who from a pool of candidates should ultimately be nominated by your political party to run in the General Election.
- Primary elections normally attract more partisan voters, which is how extreme candidates can end up on the ballot in a General Election. Improving participation can help to moderate outcomes so elected officials more closely represent larger blocks of voters.
There are important races up and down the ballot this year. You can review all the candidates who signed up to run for federal, Congressional and statewide and local races at Georgia Secretary of State’s website here.

It is also a great time to update your voter registration status if you have moved since the last election.
Your vote is your voice.
