A special election will be held April 18 for state Senate District 32, which includes part of Sandy Springs. Incumbent Judson Hill (R-Marietta) is resigning to run for the 6th Congressional District seat in another special election on the same day.

Candidate qualifying for the Senate election will run Feb. 22-24, according to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office.
