Early voting for the upcoming U.S. Senate Runoff Elections in Georgia began December 14, 2020. In cities like Savannah, Georgia signs posted along busy roadways encourage voters to cast their ballots during early voting period through January 5, 2021.
Savannah voters can cast ballots early at city buildings including the Board of Elections located at 117 Eisenhower Drive. Ballot booths are opened there most days between 8am in morning and until 7pm in the evening.
January 5, 2021 is Election Day for the two runoff Senate races in Georgia that will determine which two Georgia candidates will represent Georgia in the U.S. Senate. The first runoff race is between Democrat Reverend Raphael Warnock, a Georgia native who faces Republican incumbent businesswoman Kelly Loeffler. The second runoff race is between Democrat Jon Ossoff, an awarding winning investigative journalist who faces incumbent Republican businessman David Perdue candidate.
The result of the Georgia runoff races will determine which political party Democrat or Republican will control the Senate majority.
Candidates are campaigning on issues important to Georgia voters including civil rights, jobs, climate change, and justice.
The nation is watching these two senate races as Georgia holds an important place in U.S. elections. In the 2020 general election for President of the United State, for the first time since 1992, Georgia state turned Democratic blue from Republican red.
Follow the signs in Georgia and go out and vote.
