Glynn County Republicans congratulated the winners on its facebook page, while the Glynn County Democrats thanked those who voted in the runoff. “While we may not have been able to elect John Barrow and Lindy Miller as our next Secretary of State and Public Service Commissioner, respectively, the results were close. In Glynn County, less than 25% of eligible voters (Democrats & Republicans) turned out to vote, so we have some work to do in 2020.”
