ATLANTA — Georgia voters went to the polls Tuesday for the state's Aug. 11 primary runoff election. 

There are races in 94 of the state's 159 counties being contested.

The Georgia Secretary of State's office worked together with boards of elections in each of the counties to avoid the problems and long lines that plagued some voters and precincts during the June 9 primary election. 

Our reporters didn't notice any significant lines at any of the precincts that we surveyed Tuesday afternoon.
