Georgia Voters Continue Steady Record Breaking Turnout Through Day Nine
(Atlanta) – Georgia voters continued to hit record breaking turnout on day nine of Early Voting. As of Wednesday morning, Georgia is well over the One Million mark with 1,017,732 voters casting their ballot during Early Voting, with 124,508 showing up on Tuesday, October 25th. Tuesday’s total marks 23% above day nine of 2018 midterm Early Voting. Georgia has had record Early Voting turnout since the first day of Early Voting this year, surging to nearly twice the number on the first day of Early Voting in 2018.
“Georgia voters are giving their county election directors a tremendous blessing by taking advantage of the unprecedented variety of Early Voting options available to all Georgians," said Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. "Reducing the burden on the counties is crucial for a safe, secure, and accessible election.”
Reports of long lines were rare, with some lines in the metro areas being reported. No substantial delays were reported yesterday. Early Voting turnout is expected to increase during the last week of Early Voting. Georgia voters are encouraged to take advantage of the upcoming mandatory Early Voting Saturday.
