Voters head to polling stations as Georgia decides crucial Senate race



by Joseph Earnest January 5, 2021


Newscast Media ATLANTA, GeorgiaThe Senate election in Georgia took place in November, but none of the candidates managed to achieve a majority, which triggered a runoff between the two top finishers. Additionally, Georgia's special election for a vacated US Senate seat will be decided in a runoff on the same day.


Citizens of Georgia are flocking to polling stations as the US Senate runoffs, which will decide who will control the upper chamber of the Congress, are in full swing.

In the 3 November election, Republican incumbent David Perdue received 49.73% of the vote and his Democrat challenger Jon Ossoff received 47.95% so they are both seeking to win a majority this time. Republican Kelly Loeffler and Democrat the Reverend Raphael Warnock are standing for the state's second senatorial seat in a special election which arose because Republican senator Johnny Isakson stood down at the end of 2019. In the first round on 3 November, Loeffler received 25.9% and Warnock got 32.9% and two other candidates have been eliminated.

The vote outcome will prove crucial as it will determine whether the GOP retains control of the Senate, or whether it will be ceded to the Democrats. Add Comments >>
