The November ballot includes races for the U.S. Senate, where Democrat Michelle Nunn, Republican David Perdue and Libertarian Amanda Swafford, a former Flowery Branch councilwoman, are running  to replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Moultrie. The race may help determine whether Republicans or Democrats control the upper chamber of the federal legislative branch.

Incumbent Republican Gov. Nathan Deal is running for re-election against Democrat state Sen. Jason Carter and Libertarian candidate Andrew Hunt.

For the 9th District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep. Doug Collins, R-Gainesville, is seeking re-election against Democrat David Vogel.

There are also contested races for lieutenant governor, secretary of state, attorney general, commissioners of agriculture, insurance and labor, state school superintendent and two seats on the Public Service Commission, which regulates and sets rates for public utilities.

There are also two proposed constitutional amendments and a statewide referendum on the ballot.
