Decatur, GA — With the 2020 general election mostly behind us, Georgians are now looking forward to the two Senate runoffs this upcoming January.

Here are some dates you need to know:

– If you’re not yet registered, register to vote by December 7th. Young people who will turn 18 by January 5th are eligible to register for this runoff election.

– November 18 — Earliest day to mail an absentee ballot. Request your absentee ballot here. (You’ll need your Georgia drivers’ license or ID number on hand.)

– December 14 — Early in-person voting begins for the runoffs.

– January 5 — Election Day for the runoffs.

The Senate runoffs are between incumbent Kelly Loeffler and the Rev. Raphael Warnock, and incumbent David Perdue and Jon Ossoff. Under Georgia law, a runoff election is triggered if no candidate reaches 50% of the vote during the general election. Both races have been confirmed to enter into a runoff.
On Nov. 9, Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler released a joint statement asking Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger to step down due to his failure “to deliver honest and transparent elections.” The Secretary of State dismissed the statement, saying he does not plan to resign.
Vice President Mike Pence will travel to Georgia next week to campaign for the Republican Senators.
