ATLANTA (AP) - In a story Nov. 4 about the Georgia elections, The Associated Press misidentified the winner and district in one of the Georgia Public Service Commission races. Commissioner H. Doug Everett, not Tim Echols, won the District 1 seat. District 1 covers south Georgia, not east-central Georgia.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Republicans win return to Ga. utility commission

2 Republicans win re-election bids for Georgia Public Service Commission

ATLANTA (AP) - Two Republicans have won re-election to the Georgia Public Service Commission.

Early returns Tuesday showed GOP Commissioner Lauren “Bubba” McDonald defeated Democratic challenger Daniel Blackman and Libertarian Robin Aaron Gilmer for the District 4 seat. The district is covers much of north Georgia and includes Rome, Gainesville and Augusta.

In the race for the District 1 seat, Commissioner H. Doug Everett defeated Libertarian opponent John Monds. No Democrat ran for the seat that includes south Georgia.

The PSC regulates electrical and gas utilities in Georgia as well as other service providers. Though its commissioners run for assigned districts, they are elected by voters statewide.
