Georgia is holding its primary runoff tonight, and our guide to the key races can be found here. Polls close at 7:00 PM ET and we'll be bringing you the results as they come in. You can keep track of the winners below.

Results: AP

4:06 PM PT: Last time around the secretary of state's site was faster than the AP. Here is the link.

4:10 PM PT: Be sure to check out Greg Giroux's county results spreadsheets for the first round for the Senate and House races. A great way to see who is meeting their targets and who isn't.

4:20 PM PT: Results are trickling in statewide.

4:26 PM PT: GA-11: About 3,000 votes are in and state Sen. Barry Loudermilk is crushing former Rep. Bobb Barr 71-29. The results are all form Cherokee County, where Loudermilk led 40-27 in the primary. Early but awful sign for Barr.

4:35 PM PT: GA-Sen: It's too early to make any conclusions with only 23,000 votes counted. Kingston doesn't need to win the Atlanta area but he needs to make sure he doesn't get crushed there like he did in the primary. So far the signs are mixed. In large Cherokee County Perdue leads 55-45, as opposed to 31-12 in the primary. However, in Hall County, Perdue leads 61-39, as opposed to 37-19.

What Perdue needs to do is vacuum up enough of the Atlanta area voters who backed Handel, Gingrey, or Broun in the first round to shut Kingston out of the area. So far it's not clear if he can do this or not.

4:40 PM PT (Steve Singiser): GA-10: While it's still pretty early in the count, we do have around 7000 votes counted in the 10th district, being vacated by failed Senate hopeful Paul Broun. Here, evangelical radio host Jody Hice holds a 56-44 lead over trucking executive (and congressional progeny) Mike Collins.

4:49 PM PT: GA-Sen: About 60,000 votes are counted, representing about 10 percent of the votes cast in May (there should be fewer votes this time) and Kingston leads 52-48.

4:50 PM PT (Steve Singiser): GA-01: The only district in the Peach State with two runoffs tonight is the Savannah-based first. Only a smattering of precincts are in, and neither of the big counties are reporting votes, but we are starting to see some space between the two GOP contenders. State senator Buddy Carter has forged the early advantage (56-44) over physician Bob Johnson. On the Democratic side, Some Dude Brian Reese leads Some Dude (Dude-ette?) Amy Tavio 57-43. In a sign of how red the early territory is, there have been 3300 votes tallied on the GOP side, versus a whopping 485 on the Democratic side.

5:02 PM PT: GA-11: Things continue to look bleak for Barr. three out of four counties are reporting some votes, and Loudermilk is beating him in each one. Loudermilk currently leads 65-35 districtwide.

5:04 PM PT: The liveblog continues here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
