About 2.1 million Americans have already cast their ballots in the Georgia senate run offs to determine which party takes control of the U.S Senate.
The runoff which will see voting end on January 5 is very crucial to Biden’s administration in shaping the 46th President’s agenda for the next 4 years.
While the Republicans need only 1 or both seats to get a majority, the Democrats have to win both to have a way. If The Dems win both seats in January, that will make Kamala Harris the tiebreaker during voting in the senate.
The runoffs became necessary since none of the 4 candidates were able to garner 50% of the close to 4 million votes cast in the November 2020 elections.
The race will see Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff going head to head with incumbent Republican senators Kelly Loefller and David Perdue.
The state said close to 1.3 Million people requested mail in ballots. 1.3 Million people have voted earlier at in-person voting centres while 721,000 have already sent their ballots by mail.
