Effingham County's delegation in the Georgia General Assembly is currently unopposed in the 2020 election.

Neither District 4 Sen. Jack Hill, House District 159 Rep. Jon Burns nor House District 161 Rep. Bill Hitchens had a challenger with two hours left in the qualifying period.

U.S. Rep. Buddy Carter will face Republican primary opposition from Daniel Merritt in the May 29 primary. Democrats Lisa Ring, Barbara Seidman and Joyce Marie Griggs are also seeking Carter's seat.

In U.S. House District 12, Rep. Rick Allen, the Republican incumbent, has two Democrat challengers, Dan Steiner and Elizabeth Johnson.
