Georgians to Vote Again in Upcoming Runoff Elections


Georgians will have the opportunity to vote two more times in this election cycle, as many state and local races went into a runoff, as well as the two US Senate seats.


Georgians will decide who controls the US Senate on January 5th, when both Senate races compete in a runoff. 

Republican incumbent David Perdue will face Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff for one senate seat, and Republican incumbent Kelly Loeffler will face Democratic challenger Raphael Warnock in the other. 

For the January 5th runoff, unregistered Georgians can register to vote from now until December 7, and December 14 is the first day of early voting for that race.

The state and local race runoffs will be held on December 1. On the ballot for Clarke County residents are the Georgia Public Service Commission race, as well as the race for District Attorney of the Western Judicial Circuit.

It is too late to register to vote for the December 1 election, but early voting will begin November 23. 

Early voting for both elections will be available at all 5 Clarke-County precincts, including the Board of Elections office downtown, the ACC Library on Baxter St., the Athens-Clarke County Extension on Cleveland Rd. in Bogart, the Tennis Center on Lexington, and the Miriam Moore Community Center on McKinley Drive. 

Absentee ballots can be requested now at https://ballotrequest.sos.ga.gov/.
