Georgians cast their ballots Tuesday in two critical races that will determine control of the US Senate for the next two years and, in turn, the fate of President-elect Joe Biden’s legislative agenda.
In the race between Democrat challenger Raphael Warnock and Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R), a number of media outlets have declared Warnock the winner. At last check, the Associated Press was reporting Loeffler was losing with 2,182,332 votes to Warnock's 2,252,808. Votes are still being counted.
The two Senate races were both very close and the official results may not be known for days since counties have to count large numbers of mail-in ballots.
Absentee ballots must be received by the close of polls to be counted. Military and overseas ballots postmarked by Tuesday and received by Friday will be counted, and absentee voters also have until Friday to fix any problems so their votes can be part of the final tally.
