The Target Smart statistical organization reports the latest numbers coming from the Georgia runoff elections as they relate to pre-election in-person and mail voting. At the end of last week, over 1.329 million votes have been received throughout the state. This is just over 241,000 less than in the regular 2020 election. The total count finds Democrats returning 47.0% of the pre-election votes; Republicans’ 46.7%; and minor party or unaffiliated voters, 6.2%.
Comparing these numbers to the regular 2020 election sees the Democratic advantage slipping slightly. For the November election, Democrats returned 47.7% of the ballots versus 45.8% for Republicans. Though President Trump lost the state with these numbers, Republican candidates in both Senate races ran slightly ahead of their Democratic opponents.
