The Voting Statistics for Georgia as of 8pm on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 reported by the
Office of the Secretary of State of Georgia are:

 

Total Number of Eligible Voters:

7,002,238 *

 

So far, during Early Voting, 
almost two million votes have been cast in Georgia.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said,
“We've been telling the counties to expect ... over five million people voting." 

 

Georgia laws were changed after complaints about Voter Registration, and Georgia now is the first state in the nation to offer the "trifecta" of:


Automatic Voter Registration from DMV Data Changes

Minimum of 16 Days of Early Voting

No Excuse Absentee Voting

 

 

Early Voting Locations: 

Registered voters in Georgia may vote in person before Election Day. Early (or advanced) voting allows Georgians to find a time to vote that fits their personal schedules in the weeks prior to Election Day, November 3, 2020.

Find available early voting locations by visiting the Secretary of State’s website and selecting your county of residence from the list.

Alternatively, you may look for your polling place information by logging into your My Voter Page.

Just wondering how many of them are real voters? Not dead people from the grave, not fake voters from "homeless" not fake voters who are not US citizens.. just thinking out loud, Endre

Actually, IMHO, voting is the most important task EVERY TIME in history. Unfortunately, when you read the statistics about voters, only four elections surpassed 60% of Eligible Voters - 1960 was the highest - 62.8% and, sadly, 1996 only 49.0%. Lynn In fact, I think I will add a note with the chart in the post.

Hello Lynn - I have read/seen similar reports from across the country as well as seen "predictions" of a record turnout.

Good morning Lynn. I think some programs are good to turn out the vote and some just stuff the ballott box. How did we make it the first couple hundred years without these programs? Enjoy your day!

Just added statistics to the post. Programs or no programs - the voter turnout has always been between 49.0% and 62.8% since the year 1932. Travesty for our country that citizens don't vote.

Hi Lynn,

 All I can speak to is my own experience and Arizona does a great job with mail-in voting. Our state verifies who we are.  Almost 90% of AZ voters vote by mail. 

Now California does not get it.  I know this from personal experience as well. I was still getting ballots after I moved. Very long story short - 3 calls and two letters over 3 years. The last letter I sent certified before I was pulled off the voter rolls. How do I know this? I kept getting jury notices! In CA, my niece just got 6 ballots for her and her husband.  - 2 for the previous owners, 2 just random mailed to the house, and their 2 absentee ballots.   

I was lucky that the jury notices came to my Arizona address. Otherwise, I might not have known that.

Lynn no matter how people vote, the important thing is that they vote.  Voting is to precious to not do it.
