Early Voting In Georgia Runoff Exceeds 2.5 Million
MORE THAN 2.5 MILLION VOTERS IN GEORGIA HAVE CAST EARLY VOTES FOR TWO RUN-OFF SENATE ELECTIONS THERE
(CNN) – Voters in Georgia have cast more than 2.5 million ballots a week ahead of two run-off elections there.
The Senate seats up for grabs; could change control of the chamber from Republican to Democrat.
If Democrat Jon Ossoff defeats Senator David Perdue and Raphael Warnock beats GOP Senator Kelly Loeffler; it would split the Senate down the middle with 50 votes on each side of the aisle.
In that situation, vice president-elect Kamala Harris would be allowed to break ties.
A staggering $500 billion have been spent on the two campaigns.
Of the nearly 2.6 million votes already cast, 1.7 million have been in-person at early voting locations, and 856,000 have been absentee ballots.
President Donald Trump also put absentee ballots in Georgia from his campaign in the headlines Wednesday.
After an audit from state officials found no fraud, he publicly called for Republican Georgia governor Brian Kemp to resign.
