Georgia Runoff Fact Sheet

The Runoff Election is Scheduled in Georgia:

Here's what you need to know to make your GA Runoff Voting Plan!

In Georgia, a runoff election is held when no candidate receives more than 50% of the vote.  There are seven races that require runoffs following the General Election - both Senate seats are still in play and there are five local offices that are yet to be determined.  

If you are a Georgia voter, we hope you that you’ll exercise your voting right once again on January 5th.  If you didn’t vote in the General Election, you are still eligible to vote in the runoff and you may register through December 7th.  

If you or your friends or family members will turn 18 before January 5th, they can register to vote in the runoff as well. Let them know. Now is the time to request your absentee ballot and make your voting plan!
