More than 3 million Georgians have already voted in the Jan. 5 runoff election, a figure that both smashes the previous turnout record for a statewide runoff in the Peach State and exemplifies the urgency of the dual Senate runoffs that will determine which party controls Congress’s upper chamber. According to Georgia Votes, which is analyzing data from the secretary of state’s office, 3,001,017 voters had cast ballots in the runoff election following the last day of the three-week advance in person voting period. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been raised and spent by the candidates, political parties and outside groups, putting the matchups between Republican Sen. David Perdue and Jon Ossoff, and Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Rev. Raphael Warnock on a national stage.
