Georgia Senate Runoff Sees Historic Turnout for Early Voting

All eyes are on the Peach State, and citizens aren’t taking any chances this go-round.

With the eyes of the American political machine squarely fixed on the great State of Georgia, the citizens of the dirty south are making sure that their voices will be heard.

The results of Georgia’s two Senate races were too close to call back in November and, under state law, both races will be heading to a runoff election on January 5th.  This pair of political posts will decide the balance of the Senate for years to come, so both parties are doing everything in their power to turn out the vote.

And it’s working.  Big time.

DeKalb County elections director Erica Hamilton said Friday that turnout for Jan. 5′s high-stakes runoff elections has been strong thus far.

Hamilton said that more than 55,000 DeKalb residents had cast early in-person votes through Thursday, the first four days of advance voting. The county had also issued 131,000 absentee ballots — and already received about 46,000 back.

And then…

“For a runoff, it has been kind of historic,” Hamilton said.

Georgia turned “blue” in the 2020 presidential race – something that The Peach State hadn’t done since the 1990’s.

President Trump has expressed his own concerns about the Georgia races, however, imploring Governor Brian Kemp to be more active in examining potential cases of voter fraud.
