Senate Runoff Election

Elections are not over for Georgians.

There is going to be a runoff for the two Georgia senate seats. ISA encourages all eligible Georgia voters to make an extra effort to cast their votes.

The election Day: January 5, 2021.

First Day of Early Voting: December 14, 2020

Last Day to Register:  December 7, 2020

Request an absentee ballot: November 18, 2020

The function of the federal government for the next two years is going to depend on who controls the senate. If you were registered for the November 3rd election, and your address has not changed, you do not need to re-register for this special election. If any one is not registered yet to vote (e.g. new address or recently turned 18 or became a US citizen), please register, and then vote.

If Democrats win both GA Senate runoff races, the Democrats will have control of the Senate along with the House of Representatives and Presidency allowing for easier passage of legislation. Democrats having control of the Senate will make it easier for the Democratic President to get his nominees (for the cabinet and judges) confirmed.

If a Republican wins either of GA Senate runoff races, the Republicans will have control of the Senate while the Democrats will have control of the House of Representatives and the Presidency, which is a divided government affecting the passage of legislation and approval of nominees.
