Georgia Senate runoff

One of the best ways to get your voice heard is to cast a ballot! With a record turnout of voters in the November general election, now is the time for everyone statewide to register and cast their vote if they will be 18 by the runoff election on January 5, 2021. Runoff elections are held when no candidate wins the required majority of votes. The margin separating the U.S. Senate candidates is narrow and two Senate seats will be decided in the upcoming January runoff election. Control of the U.S. Senate could hang in the balance.


To help you make a voting plan and cast your vote safely, below is some helpful information about the upcoming runoff races.
