With the marquee races of governor and U.S. Senate settled in the primary, turnout was not expected to be nearly as high — and there were only five days of early voting in advance of Tuesday’s election.
Notably, more than 850,000 Georgians cast an in-person ballot or returned an absentee ballot in the weeks before last month’s primary. It’s more than double the number of Georgians who voted in the primary two years ago.
As the votes are counted Tuesday evening, you’ll be able to watch the results as they come in by following this link.
