Georgia is holding primary elections on Tuesday to set the ballot for the November general election.
Republican Gov. Nathan Deal, who is seeking his second term, will face two challengers in the primary, longtime GOP rivals David Pennington and John Barge, both of whom trail in the polls at this time.
The grandson of former President Jimmy Carter, Jason Carter, faces no primary challenge and has already secured the Democratic nomination for governor.
Andrew Hunt, a technology executive, will also go uncontested, securing his spot as the Libertarian nominee.
With U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, seven Republicans will be on the ballot for the nomination.
Michelle Nunn, Branko Radulovacki, former state Sen. Steen Miles and Todd Robinson will be on the ballot for the Democratic nomination.
The Senate nominees will face Libertarian Amanda Swafford in November.
The polls opened at 7 a.m. and will close at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
