Elected U.S. Representative

Kwanza Hall

A special election filled the remainder of the term in the United States House of Representatives for Georgia's 5th congressional district in the 116th United States Congress. Incumbent Representative John Lewis, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December 2019, died on July 17, 2020 during his 17th term.[1][2][3]


As established by the Constitution of Georgia, Governor Brian Kemp ordered a special election to fill out the remainder of Lewis's term for September 29, 2020.[4] Since no candidate reached 50% on September 29, there was a special runoff election on December 1.[5] This meant that the runoff election took place four weeks after the regular election for a full two-year term. The runoff winner would thus serve for just one month covering the holiday season.

On July 20, 2020, the state Democratic Party announced that State Senator Nikema Williams would replace Lewis on the November ballot,[6] which she won with over 300,000 votes (85%). Williams did not run in the special election to serve the remainder of Lewis's term.[7]
