Late counted ballots close gap in Democrats’ favor – even in Walton County

TSPLOST fails by a slim margin

Late votes counted in each state broke in Vice President Joe Biden’s favor, including in the state of Georgia. Results are unofficial, but all votes have reportedly now been counted in Georgia. However, in Georgia it is set for a recount.

As has been the trend nationwide, even in Walton County late-counted mail-in ballots broke in favor of the Democrats – although not anywhere near enough to change how Walton County’s vote went. Although the state has not been called, some states have and on Saturday, several media outlets began calling the former Vice President now President-Elect Biden. With legal challenges and recounts ongoing in some battleground states, it will be a while before everything is leveled out, but in Walton County results are in and we know where the voters stand.

When it comes to the President, Walton County still went for President Donald J. Trump by a wide margin. However, the 76.09 % shrunk to 74.03 % with 37,617 votes for Trump. It no longer looks like Sen. David A. Perdue is guaranteed to keep his Senate seat. Although he took Walton County by 73.66 %, it was down 2 points after the final count came in and helped put him in a runoff on Jan. 5, 2021 with Democrat John Ossoff. Neither of them managed to get over the 50 % needed statewide. Perdue has closed ahead of Ossoff by 90,295 votes (49.75 % to 47.93 % going to Ossoff and 2.32 % going to Libertarian Shane Hazel).

All eyes are likely to be on Georgia in January in a battle for the Senate as Republic Sen. Kelly Loeffler also is headed to a runoff with Democratic challenger Ralph Warnock. Both Republicans and Democrats are likely to bring out voters in the battle for the balance of power in the Senate.

U.S. Rep. Jody Hice did hold onto his seat in the House with Walton County, as well the rest of District 10, with 62.30 % choosing to return Hice to his seat over Democratic Challenger Tabitha Johnson-Green. In Walton County, Hice took 76.02 % of the vote.

In the state House, all local Republican incumbents in Walton County held onto their seats with Walton County giving the win to Rep. Bruce Williamson and Tom Kirby (who was not challenged) and helping bring it home for Republican State Senators Burt Jones and Bill Cowsert. Other notable Republican wins were Alcovy Judicial Circuit Acting District Attorney Randy McGinley who beat Democratic challenger Destiny Bryant and at the County level, Incumbent Republic Walton County Commissioners Mark Banks and Kirkland Dixon both successfully fended off Democratic challenges.

At the city level, Monroe City Council District 6 went to Tyler Gregory and the only contested seat on the Good Hope City Council was won by Frank Palombo. Good Hope incumbent Mayor Jimmy Guthrie was uncontested as were the other City Council incumbent posts that went unchallenged to Post 1 Keith Prather, Post 3 William Malcom and Post 5 David W. Mullis, Jr. Post 2 went to Kelsey Nicole Malcom who also was not challenged for the seat.

And finally, TSPOST did not manage to make it across the finish line, going down with 50.68 % of the voters rejecting the 1 cent tax for transportation projects.
