ATLANTA -- Georgia voters have turned out in record numbers to vote during the state’s gold-standard three weeks of early in-person voting. As the Nov. 3 general election approaches, Georgia continues to break records in absentee by mail voting and early, in-person voting.
“Georgia is a leader in election access,” said Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. “Notwithstanding the pandemic, voters in the Peach State can take advantage of no excuse absentee ballot voting by mail or through a secure drop box; three weeks of early, in-person voting; or Election Day voting.”
