MACON, Ga. -- The record-breaking early voter turnout continues as Georgia voters push the ballot total past one million, following a whopping 280,808 voters hitting the polls on Wednesday.
Thursday morning's total was at 1,054,605 in-person votes for the 2022 Runoff, far exceeding turnout numbers for the Runoffs in 2016 and 2018.
“Georgia’s voting system is working well,” said Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. “While some Counties are seeing more voter turnout than they anticipated, most have found a way to manage voter wait times and I appreciate the election officials and workers across Georgia who are doing their level-best to accommodate our record turnout.”
While more populous counties, like Bibb and Fulton, are seeing long lines, many polling locations are still reporting little to no wait times.
