Forsyth County Voter Registrations and Elections reported that as of approximately 5 p.m., 14,706 of the county's registered voters had cast a ballot today. This does not include advance voting or absentee ballots cast.

With that partial precinct report so far, Martha Zoller picked up 302 votes from Forsyth, Doug Collins got 225 votes and Roger D. Fitzpatrick collected 104 votes in the Republican Primary for U.S. Representative District 9. Democrat Jody Dooley, running unopposed in her primary, has 25 votes so far.
Bob Pepalis (Editor) August 01, 2012 at 01:13 AM
in the U.S. Representative Seventh District Republican Primary, incumbent Rob Woodall has 3,762 votes to David Hancock's 2,015 in ballots counted so far. The district includes precincts in Forsyth and Gwinnett counties.

It's a close one over in the Republican Primary race for Georgia's Ninth District Congressional seat. If trends continue –and it's way too early to tell with just 2 of 20 counties reporting – Roger D. Fitzpatrick could play the role of spoiler. Doug Collins has 28,074 votes, Martha Zoller collected 26,774 and Fitzpatrick trails with 12,116.
Bob Pepalis (Editor) August 01, 2012 at 01:49 AM
Rob Woodall continues to lead David Hancock in the Seventh Congressional District Republican Primary. The incumbent has 11,463 votes to Hancock's 5,817 in early returns.
Bob Pepalis (Editor) August 01, 2012 at 01:53 AM
Ooh, this one is very interesting: Doug Collins has 923 more votes than Martha Zoller, a one percent separation so far with 6 of 20 counties reporting in the Ninth Congressional District Republican Primary. And Roger D. Fitzpatrick's almost 17 percent of the vote is more than enough to cause some upset stomachs in his opponents' camps. Collins: 38,925; Zoller: 38,002; Fitzpatrick: 15,698.
Bob Pepalis (Editor) August 01, 2012 at 02:20 AM
Half the counties have reported in the Ninth Congressional District race, and Doug Collins lead over fellow Republican Martha Zoller is down to 507 votes out of 101,225 counted so far.
Bob Pepalis (Editor) August 01, 2012 at 03:06 AM
Back in the Seventh Congressional District, Rob Woodall has almost a 15,000-vote lead over David Hancock, 25,634 to 10,902.
Bob Pepalis (Editor) August 01, 2012 at 04:20 AM
It's after midnight, and Rob Woodall appears to have sewn this one up. He has 37,782 of the votes cast and counted in the Republican Primary for Seventh Congressional District so far, with challenger David Hancock totaling 15,068. Woodall likely will face Democrat Steve Reilly, who was unopposed in his party's primary and has 9,977 votes so far.
Bob Pepalis (Editor) August 01, 2012 at 04:22 AM
Less than three quarters of a percent separate Doug Collins and Martha Zoller in the Ninth Congressional District race. Collins has 45,862 of the votes cast in 19 of 20 counties that make up the district. Zoller has 45,133 votes, with Roger D. Fitzpatrick perhaps playing the role of the spoiler with 18,717 votes.
