As predicted by state election officials, only 25 percent of voters turned out for the Tuesday, May 22, Primary Election in Fulton County. But the 1,682 voters who cast votes decided four Fulton County races which were contested in the Democratic primary, as well as supported Democratic candidates running for the nomination for the First District Congressional seat.

Here are the results:

Fulton County Treasurer, Democratic Nomination

Seth Jones 748

JamieTurnbough 601


Fulton County Constable, Democratic Nomination

Lynn "Arles" Linderman 848

David Rothgeb 322


Fulton County Justice of the Peace, District 3, Democratic Nomination

Burton Yarnell 89

Ray Matthew 43


Fulton County Justice of the Peace, District 5, Democratic Nomination

Johnny Moody 109

Guy B. Smith 97


U.S. Congress, District 1, Democratic Nomination

Scott Ellington 519

Clark M. Hall 463

Gary Latanich 122

(There will likely be a run-off election because it appears no candidate received 50 percent of the vote in the district.)


Supreme Court, Position 4

Jo Hart 1,154

Raymond Abramson 277


Court of Appeals, District 2, Position 2

Rhonda Wood 925

Mitch Cash 475
