Where can I vote early on Saturday for the U.S. Senate runoff? – WSB-TV Channel 2


The U.S. Senate runoff between incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock and challenger Herschel Walker will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 6.

Early voting will be available in most Georgia counties between Nov. 28 and Dec. 2. However, certain counties will start early voting starting on Saturday.

Warnock and Walker were forced into a runoff because neither candidate won a majority in the midtern election earlier this month.

Originally, the Secretary of State’s Office said early voting was not permitted on Saturday, Nov. 26 due to a law that prohibits early voting within two days of a holiday.

Nov. 26 falls after Thanksgiving and a state holiday the following day.

However, a lawsuit filed in Fulton County Superior Court challenged this law and a judge sided with the Warnock campaign and ruled to allow counties to add Saturday voting. The judge found that the law cited by the state regarding Saturday voting after a holiday does not apply to a runoff election.
