Record Shattering Turnout Continues Tuesday
Georgia voters continued to post record turnout for in-person Early Voting on Tuesday, November 29th. Tuesday’s one day total of 300,588 is higher than Early Voting in any other previous election year, other than Monday’s total of 303,166. As of Wednesday morning, 770,745 voters have cast their in-person vote in the 2022 Runoff. The totals for Monday and Tuesday are well above previous records of 233,252 voters processed on the final day of Early Voting in the 2018 General Election, and 252,715 voting on the highest day of Early Voting in 2016.
“Georgia is a national leader in voter access and security,” said Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. “We are having historic levels of turnout and those who want to vote are voting- we believe this level of voter participation is excellent, and we’ll keep working with counties to encourage them to open more Early Voting locations in the future.”
Long lines have been reported in metro areas. However, many metro area polling locations experienced little to no wait times. Clayton, Forsyth, Richmond, Gwinnett, Fulton, Dekalb, and Cobb are among the counties publishing wait times, and we encourage voters to check before going to the polls. The last day for in-person Early Voting is Friday, December 2nd. To find Early Voting locations and hours in your county, visit the Secretary of State’s My Voter Page.
