Absentee ballot requests in Georgia for the crucial runoff elections is already off the charts.
Georgia officials say 762,000 absentee ballots have already been requested. That’s three times the number of requests made in the 2018 elections, according to WSB-TV.
The crucial January 5 runoff elections will determine which party controls the Senate. Democrats need to win both seats while Republicans just need one.
Republican incumbents, Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue argued that they should be elected to keep Biden’s presidency in check since Democrats will control both the White House and the House of Representatives. While Democrats Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff say Joe Biden’s presidency will be stiffled by a Republican majority in the Senate.
Democrats are feeling hopeful after President-elect Joe Biden flipped the state in the presidential election, winning by more than 12,000 votes.
