Voters cast their ballots on Tuesday, December 5, 2023 for the district 2 commissioner special runoff. The winner, Neat Robinson, will serve the remainder of the term until December 31, 2024.

District 2 represents portions of the Dutchtown, Fairview and Stockbridge communities. The district commission seat will appear on the ballot again in 2024 for a four-year term.

December 2023 Special Runoff

About 2,700 voters cast their ballots in the special runoff. Neat Robinson received 56% of the votes cast, or 1,530 votes. Former Commissioner Bruce Holmes received 44%, or 1,193 votes. The two candidates advanced to a runoff election after no candidate received a majority in November.

Commissioner Neat Robinson was appointed as interim commissioner in June 2023. She filled the unexpired term left by Dee Clemmon’s resignation from the board.

A Look Ahead at Vote 2024

Voters in Henry County will have several positions to consider when they vote in 2024. Some county positions on the ballot will include the following:

  • County Commission Chair, and commissioners in districts 1 & 2,
  • School Board members in districts 1, 2 and 3,
  • Clerk of Superior Court,
  • District Attorney,
  • Tax Commissioner,
  • Sheriff, and
  • Coroner.

Also on the ballot will be state assembly members. Henry County could see two open house elections, based on new maps the general assembly passed this month. The open seats are in the Hampton and McDonough areas, respectively.
