This morning’s vote by the House was 159-1 and followed action earlier this week by the Senate. The move was expected after a federal judge’s ruling last year moved up Georgia’s federal primary to allow for more time for military and overseas ballots in runoff situations.
Under the changes, any runoff would be scheduled for July 22. In addition, the bill sets candidate qualifying for March 3 through March 7.
It would also require candidates to file a new campaign finance report on March 31 in election years.
