Polls have now closed in Georgia for the pivotal runoff elections being held for both Georgia US Senate seats, though if you are currently in line at a polling location, you can still cast your vote. Additionally, a handful of counties and certain precincts have extended time to vote. These races will determine whether the GOP retain their majority in the Senate, or whether Democrats will have unified control of government in DC for the first time since 2010.

Discussion Thread: Georgia Senate Runoff Elections

Today, voters in Georgia cast their ballots in the runoff election for both their regularly scheduled Senate election, and the special Senate election from the retirement of former Senator Johnny Isakson. In the regular election, former Republican Senator David Perdue (who technically vacated this seat on Sunday because of how the election was scheduled), the previous incumbent, faces off against Democrat Jon Ossoff. In the runoff, Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler faces off against Democrat and Ebenezer Baptist Church pastor Raphael Warnock.

As Republicans currently hold a 51-48 majority in the Senate, the winner of the vacated regular Senate seat and Senator Loeffler's seat will determine the party which controls the Senate. As a result, this special election has generated tremendous interest and a large volume of votes despite the historically low turnout that runoff elections attract. Already, nearly 3.1 million Georgians have voted, and turnout today will be decisive in determining whether the GOP holds on to these seats, or Democrats win their first Senate race in Georgia in 20 years.

For Georgian redditors, polls are open from 7AM to 7PM. If you are in the line when polls close, you will be allowed to vote still. Georgia does not have same day voter registration. Check your registration status to see if it is current, and remember to bring proper voter identification. If you haven't yet voted and are eligible to do so, please take the time today to cast your ballot!

r/conservative discusses the results of the Georgia primary... they’re not happy

Original Post

Google Trend stats say it all: last week Georgians searched for 3 things: stimulus, unemployment, and coronavirus. McConnell and the GOP corporate cronies in the Senate failed to deliver on what voters care about and got punished.

The GOP eighter becomes a conservative multi-ethnic working-class party or it dies. Good riddance. Source

Dems registered 100k young voters that didn’t vote in nov... meanwhile the GOP... they uh... see... the GOP was busy doing.... um... Source

This really sucks but you can thank Mitch and his antics surrounding the COVID stimulus bill for this. Source

"hey lets abandon our base, nothing will go wrong there"

How many times does the GOP need to learn to stop abandoning the base. Source

Quite frankly I’m surprised anyone could support Leofler after her blatant and clear insider trading and stock sell off prior to first wave of lockdowns, never mind the hard pass she got from DoJ either. Talk about a corrupt piece of human trash who hates their constituents. Source

We were fucked over by horribly sloppy leadership in the GOP. Very much so a shame because Georgia should have been a 2 seat win for us. Well played to the democrats I guess they ran a better campaign (even though I hate both candidates lol) well played...

Discussion Thread: Georgia Senate Runoff Elections Results | Part V

Following poll closing in the Georgia Senate runoffs, the AP has projected that Reverend Raphael Warnock (D) will defeat incumbent Senator Kelly Loeffler (R), who was appointed to the seat in 2019. Senator-elect Warnock is only the second popularly elected African American Senator from a former confederate state, and the first from the state of Georgia.

Networks are also watching the regular Georgia Senate seat, where Jon Ossoff (D) currently leads former incumbent David Perdue (R), who vacated this seat on Sunday, by 17K votes and 0.4%. The remaining vote is largely in Atlanta, which outlets expect to lean towards Ossoff, but the result currently falls within the automatic recount threshold.

Should Jon Ossoff’s margin hold, he would be the first Jewish Senator from a former confederate state since 1980, and the first from the state of Georgia. Additionally, Democrats would win control of the Senate for the first time since 2014, and hold unified control over elected branches of government in DC for the first time since 2010.
