About the Georgia runoff

Why vote?

Vote.

Because there are people who still don’t want you to.

Why another election?

Each state sends two Senators to Washington.

This year, BOTH Georgia’s senate seats are up for re-election. This almost NEVER happens.

When no single senate candidate receives more than 50% of the vote during the November election, Georgia’s constitution requires the top two vote-getters to go through a second round of voting called a “runoff.” The runoff election then decides the winner. This happened with BOTH of Georgia’s senate seats, so now we have two runoffs at once!

In short, Georgians will decide if the Senate is controlled by Democrats (the Biden/Harris party) or Republicans (the Trump/McConnell party). Democrats will take control if both Democrats win their runoffs here on January 5th; Republicans will keep control if either of the Republicans wins their race.

How Georgians vote on January 5th will impact everything from healthcare, to COVID relief, to minimum wage and taxes for YEARS to come.

No kidding.
