Turnout for Early Voting in Georgia Reassures Elections Officials
Primary voters in Georgia, a critical battleground state in the midterm elections, are showing up to early voting locations and returning mail-in ballots in record-high numbers, elections officials say.
Recent polls have indicated that voters question whether elections in the state would be fair. That has worried state elections officials. And they’ve blame “conspiracy theories” from both Democrats and Republicans for fueling uncertainty that they say undermines the election process.
But now, the higher-than-usual turnout for early voting suggests Georgians believe the election process in their state works far more than they’ve disclosed in recent polls.
Early voting for the May 24 primary began in Georgia on May 2. By May 10, more than 250,000 people had voted early.
