Unofficial Election Results in Sumter County

AMERICUS – Decision Day, or officially known as Election Day: The day Sumter County, the state of Georgia and the rest of the country have all been waiting for and anticipating.

It is the day that the people of Sumter County will choose who the next President of the United States will be. While that, of course, is of monumental importance, other more local races are more pertinent to the county and to Southwest Georgia, such as the race for Sumter County Sheriff, Chief Magistrate, GA House of Representatives District 138 and the race for the Georgia’s Second Congressional District.

In 2016, 10,974 registered voters in Sumter County voted. This year, there are approximately 18,000 registered voters in the county and of those registered voters, 6,630 of them voted during the early voting period.
