Early voting continues to surge in Georgia
The record turnout in Georgia for a midterm election continued on the second day of early voting.
More than 134,000 voters cast early ballots Tuesday, representing a 3.3 percent increase over early voting two years ago but a 75 percent increase over the same day during the last midterm in 2018.
This year’s midterms mark the first general election since the Republican-controlled General Assembly passed controversial election reform legislation last year, replacing the signature-match verification process for absentee ballots with a photo ID requirement and restricting the location of absentee ballot drop boxes.
Over the first two days of early voting, more than 286,000 Georgians cast ballots.
