Since this is a nonpartisan special election, all candidates for the election were listed alphabetically, though their party affiliations are noted on the ballot. According to Georgia law, to win outright, a candidate needed a majority vote; since no candidate won more than 50% of the vote, the top two finishers competed in a runoff election on July 17 2007.
Because of the close vote total in the runoff, Whitehead also had the right to request a recount of the runoff result, but chose not to do so.
The official returns for the June 19 election and the July 17 run-off are:
