Georgia’s Early Vote Soars 142% After GOP Attacks Mailed Ballots
Bloomberg reports Georgia’s Early Vote Soars 142% After GOP Attacks Mailed Ballots.
The record-smashing crowds casting ballots early in battleground Georgia owe their size at least in part to people changing their minds about voting by mail after President Donald Trump and other Republicans spent months criticizing the method.
In the first eight days of voting, nearly 1.7 million Georgians voted absentee or in-person, a 142% increase from the same period in the 2016 race, state data show. Of those, more than 980,000 voted in person.
