Early voting in crucial Georgia runoff surpasses 2.5 million


#Republican #Sens. #Kelly #Loeffler and #David #Perdue both face runoffs after failing to garner more than 50% of the vote in #November’s general election. #If #Democrats #Jon #Ossoff and #Raphael #Warnock win both seats, the #Senate would be split 50-50, prompting any legislative ties to be broken by #Vice #President-elect #Kamala #Harris.

#While 1,713,950 #Georgians have cast ballots in person at early voting locations across the state, 856,643 have voted absentee by mail, out of nearly 1.4 million absentee ballots requested. The race has drawn national attention, with #President elect-Joe #Biden, #Harris and #President #Donald #Trump all scheduled to hold campaign events across the state in the final week leading up to next #Tuesday.

#Voters in the state have been bombarded with a staggering amount of ads leading up to #Election #Day, with spending approaching an eyebrow-raising $540 million, both from candidate ads and out-of-state sponsors.
The races are also drawing national attention as #Trump continues to allege baseless claims of election fraud, calling #Wednesday for #Republican #Gov. #Brian #Kemp’s resignation. #Trump lost the state by a narrow margin to #Biden in #November.
A signature audit of absentee ballots cast in the #November election, requested by #Trump’s campaign and released #Tuesday by #Secretary of #State #Brad #Raffensperger’s office, “found no fraudulent absentee ballots and found that the #Cobb #County #Elections #Department had “a 99.99% accuracy rate in performing correct signature verification procedures.”
