Early voting with record turnout ends in Georgia: 3 million vote for Senate runoffs




A huge number of Georgians, three million, have already cast their vote for the U.S. Senate runoffs. Election day is on Tuesday, following which votes would be counted after 7 p.m.. Both President Donald Trump and President-elect Joe Biden will visit Georgia to lend support to their candidates and motivate voters to turn out in karge numbers on election day; in this crucial election.


These make-or -break elections are extremely important for both the Democrats and the Republicans. The battle is between U.S. Senators and Republicans Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue who face a tough challenge from Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.
