What is a Runoff?

Runoff elections are held when on candidate win the required majority of votes. Georgia will have two runoff elections for both Senate seats.

TO DO: Check the status of your registration!

Even if you voted in the General Election, make sure you verify for the runoff that you are registered.

Voting by mail/absentee ballot

You will need to request a ballot specifically for the Georgia runoff election, even if you voted in the November 3 election. We recommend you request a ballot as soon as possible. Ballots must be received by the time the polls close on Jan. 5, 2021.
