Georgia Blows Past New Records on Voter Turnout

New numbers released from Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger confirm the state's new voter integrity laws, passed last year and signed by Republican Governor Brian Kemp, have juiced record turnout just two weeks away from Election Day. In fact, ballots cast have already rivaled numbers from the 2020 presidential election and it's a midterm year. 


"Georgia voters continued to hit record breaking turnout on the first mandatory Saturday of Early Voting. As of Sunday morning, approximately 740K Georgia voters have cast their ballot during in-person Early Voting, with a whopping 79,682 showing up on Saturday, October 22nd. Saturday’s total marks an astounding 159% increase from day six of 2018 midterm Early Voting and shattered the turnout record of day six of Early Voting in the 2020 Presidential election by 20%," Raffensperger's office released. "Georgia has had record Early Voting turnout since the first day of Early Voting this year, surging to nearly twice the number on the first day of Early Voting in 2018. Totals have remained within striking distance of the 2020 Presidential election turnout, and have shattered previous midterm turnout records by 50% or greater during every day of Early Voting this week."

The numbers confirm early totals put out by Raffensperger's office last week. 


Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has repeatedly claimed new voter integrity laws would suppress voters. In fact, her claims of "Jim Crow 2.0" cost Atlanta the MLB All Star Game last year.
