On Nov. 3, 2020, Georgians, along with the rest of the United States, voted for president as well as their state and local officials. So why are people here voting again? Well, Georgia has a runoff rule. Essentially if no U.S. Senate candidate wins over 50% of the vote, then there’s a second round of voting to choose a definite winner.

Two incumbent Republican senators are trying to hold on to their seats against two Democrat challengers. The balance of power in the U.S. for the next two years literally hinges on this election.
