2020 isn't over yet, and we're clearing our calendars because Georgia has TWO Senate seats to fill on January 5th. Fun fact: If the Republicans lose, Mitch McConnell will also lose control of the Senate.

The race is tight, with GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler running ahead of their Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock by the slimmest of margins. In fact, no candidate finished with 50% of the vote -- which is why we're headed to this runoff fun-off.

Here's what you need to know: Georgians who want to vote in this runoff election and who've yet to register can do so until Monday, December 7. Anyone turning 18 by January 5 can also register. All voters will need a new ballot, which can be requested now or you can vote in-person starting Monday, December 14.

  • Does my state require my ballot to be postmarked or delivered by Election Day?

    Mail ballots must be received, not postmarked, by Election Day in order for them to be counted. If you're worried about postal delays, learn about your non-mail ballot return options below.

    Return Your Ballot

Vote by Mail: What If?

  • What if I request a vote by mail ballot but I decide I want to vote in person instead?

    First, do not mail a ballot and vote in person. If the ballot has been voted and returned to and received by the board of registrars, then the mail ballot shall be deemed to have been voted. If you still have the mail ballot and give it to the poll manager of the precinct in which your name appears on the elector's list, then you may vote a regular ballot. If you have not received a mail ballot, or if you have returned the mail ballot, but the registrars have not received the ballot, you may cancel the ballot by appearing in person before the registrar or absentee ballot clerk and making a written request to have the mail ballot marked “canceled.” After satisfying themselves as to your identity, the registrars or absentee ballot clerk shall allow you to vote in person at that precinct.

  • What if I still haven't received my ballot?

    If you’ve requested your ballot, but you still haven’t received it at least 14 days before the election, check the status of your ballot delivery. If it arrives before Election Day, you can drop your ballot off in-person at the office of your county registrar. If you still don’t receive it before Election Day, you can cast a provisional ballot at your polling place. Do not mail a ballot and also vote in person. Learn more about provisional ballots here:

  • Control of the Senate is still up for grabs. Perdue and Loeffler are among the worst examples of corrupt Senators the Republican party has to offer. These races are now the most important to fund, as they are our last chance to take power from Mitch McConnell. PLUS, we’ve added Fair Fight here as well.
