Early voting shatters records in Georgia
After weeks of early voting, over 2 and a half million Georgians voted early in the pivotal 2022 midterm elections. That includes more than 2.2 million in-person early voters and about 216,000 absentee ballots that had been accepted as of Saturday morning. In total, about 32 percent of the state’s registered voters have already cast a ballot.
Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger called the turnout “near-Presidential,” and 2022 turnout did come within 200,000 votes of 2020 early voting turnout. By comparison, the 2018 midterm elections attracted 1.8 million voters.
In Athens-Clarke County, just over 25,000 people have voted so far – about 31 percent of registered voters.
Tomorrow, of course, is election day. Polls will be open from 7 am to 7 pm. To find your polling location, visit mvp.sos.ga.gov.
