Are there Statewide totals and how do we get access to them? I called the Secretary of State's Office and they told me they would get back to me on that.

Hi. We don't have statewide totals at this point. These tallies are coming directly from Fulton and DeKalb. We'll share statewide numbers when we can get them.
