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.
