"R" indicates that a candidate is Republican and "D" a Democrat. Candidates with no letter by their names are nonpartisan. Libertarians will nominate their candidates at a convention on Saturday.

Interested in other races? Look them up at the Georgia Secretary of State's pretty but barely functional new website.

Qualifying runs through noon Friday. Check back every afternoon for updates.
