Midway through, Georgia is seeing record early voting

ATLANTA, Georgia (WDEF) – Georgia officials report record early voting numbers continue for the May primaries.

270,000 Georgians have voted early in the first week and a half (through Wednesday).

That’s far in front of both the 2018 and 2020 primaries.

We still have one more weekend and one more week of early voting.

The primaries are on May 24th.

They include hotly contested races on the Republican side for Governor and U.S. Senate.

So far, in person voting is more than ten times greater than absentee voting.

And the Republican primaries are getting more votes than the Democrats.

Total Turnout: 292,164
Early In-Person: 269,021
Absentee: 23,143

Republican: 168,715
