I basically moved to Atlanta for a few weeks in May and June 2017 to cover the GeorgiaÂ 6th congressional special election -- the first (major) election during the Trump era. And there have been a lot of transplants from other parts of theÂ country. The results with this level of Election Day turnout just proves the old political axiom: Nobody knowsÂ anything. Ours come from The Associated Press. Georgia voters will determine the balance of the U.S. Senate as they elect both Senate seats. Georgia election admins battle Covid and conspiracies ahead of Senate runoffs, https://www.politico.com/news/2021/01/05/gabriel-sterling-blames-trump-455279, GOP Georgia election official: Blame Trump if Perdue or Loeffler lose, Democrats go back where they started to expunge Trump era: Jon Ossoff, 84 percent between 2010 and 2018>. We should be able to watch two things: First of all, is one party consistently outperforming what theyâd need to get a majority, going precinct by precinct as those places count all their votes (early and Election Day)? (And James Arkin memorably wrote about Ossoff's evolution as a candidate, if you're interested!)Â. I love when Steven uses words likeÂ co-terminous. Charlie Looks like Gwinnett is only reporting mail votes right now, which we'd expect to be the most Democratic-leaning segment of the total vote. I mean 171,000. I spoke with some Republicans Zach Marc who said 900k was a decent position, and the higher it went above 1 million the better theyÂ felt, Republicans were pretty sure they would win if total turnout started hitting 900k, but that might not hold true. What does it allÂ mean? I don't think anyone will be surprised by this tweet from the president. There's also the obvious point: Republicans have a Black voterÂ problem. And as we know, voters of color vote overwhelmingly forÂ Democrats. If there's somehow presidential total turnout, which I doubt, that would mean there's about 1.24m votes left. Georgia election results are provided by the Associated Press. Democrat Raphael Warnock has won Georgia’s Senate special election runoff — and made history Warnock’s Georgia win is a blow to Republicans. For those readers who are curious, POLITICO is the best media league softball team. And since many of the tranches still to come are from Democratic-oriented counties, they will likely narrow the race or the lead will changeÂ hands. "It could be a see-saw for the rest of the evening" as more votes come in, Sterling said. So Chatham County allegedly releasing votes tonight after it was reported that folks were going home. A liberal outfit from Colorado rented a house in town for door-knockers toÂ live. Gabriel Sterling is up with another live press conference: 27,600 advance votes yet to come in, across the state. But a couple of Metro Atlanta counties have said more people showed up to vote today than on Nov. 3 (even as they haven't counted their votesÂ yet). Both won roughly 88% there -- outperforming Biden -- amid heavy turnout for aÂ runoff. Warnock is upÂ 35,031. Keep in mind that's home to Valdosta, where Trump held his Dec. 5Â rally. That's going to prove very helpful in breaking down the results county-by-county with all of you tonight. It hasn't been easy for them but I have seen no (legitimate) systemic complaints about the administration of theÂ runoff. As the night goes on, there's increasing worry that conservative North Georgia isÂ underperforming. With 3.4m votes in, it stands to reason that almost 70% of the vote is in. There's "big tranches of votes" for Democrats still out, and a lot of "little tranches" around the state. Perdue's big enemy was the clock. Muscogee County (Columbus) Republicans, who have made Election Day voting a political issue in and of itself, are hoping for 900,000 people to show total, which would probably mean lots of GOP voters. And, it goes without saying, but the president is lying about the a voteÂ dump, While we're talking about election administrators: I think the folks in Georgia really do deserve an attaboy for this election. It's important to note that this 'big voter dump' he's talking about is a figment of his imagination. Georgia has an middling number of people with four-year college degrees. Expect these numbers to seesaw. I know that sounds high, Marc. Some votes from DeKalb County, outside Atlanta, just landed, moving Raphael Warnock back into the lead in the special election. However: THERE ARE OTHER COUNTIES. So we're at 2.8m votes in and Perdue just cleared 50% and took a marginal lead over Ossoff but Loeffler still trails Warnock, who's just over 50% asÂ well. Also, who says a Trump won't be on the ballot? (If that were to happen, the Senate would be evenly divided 50-50 and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris would serve as the tie-breaking vote for Democrats.) Loeffler, meanwhile, turned ** much ** harder right in her jungleÂ primary. Well, they're simply estimations of how many votes have been cast in the races. Republicans are at roughly 700 votes there, to about 550 for eachÂ Democrat. Despite what the president believes, there's quite a degree of balkanization on election nightÂ there, No, I do not. So far, we have essentially none of the Election Day vote counted in Metro Atlanta yet, including the populous suburban counties were Republicans were once dominant but have ceded massive ground over the past decade. Ah, yes, THAT is happening tomorrow. This fixation with making a call is so much a product of 24-hour news and social media. ATLANTA (WALB) - All 159 Georgia counties have certified their results in the Jan. 5 runoff elections. This can see-saw really quickly, and I wouldn't assume Democratic voters are going to stay this activated (or anywhere close) 22 months from nowÂ either. So thatâs right in the middle.

Just think -- we have the Electoral College drama ahead of us tomorrow. 2021 Georgia Election Results. Track results from the Georgia Senate runoff election. His win means Democrats will have control of the Senate. Just about every special election situation in the last four years has been Democrats doing better than ever before in the big suburbs but Republicans doing even better than that in hundreds of smaller communities. Yeah Andrew, theyâve got so much money to burn that theyâre flying planes withÂ banners. They do have that system, Marc! It all adds up to this: Almost all the votes are in. Even though Dems ultimately won that, Trump's last-minute rally there, per Republicans at the time, put it closer than itÂ was. Biden “won” Georgia by roughly 12,000 votes. I almost included it in the preview we published thisÂ morning. I'm still fascinated that Georgia has a county named Jeff Davis, in honor of the only president of the Confederacy. Brian Kemp and Stacey Abrams arenât on the ballot on Tuesday. Even started breaking it in...Â Sad. And while Sen. David Perdue wasnât really considered among the top tier of vulnerable senators to start the cycle, Georgia slowly but surely rose on the list of competitive states through the cycle, with both GOP and Dem groups investing pretty heavily by the end, even well before Joe Bidenâs campaign started to play here in a big way. Those ballots in Chatham may be what we are ultimately waiting for, but that ain't coming 'tillÂ tomorrow, Current margin of Perdue's lead over Ossoff is about 3,100Â votes, Welcome to being a true swing state, Georgia [Editing this: I meant a truly purple battleground state with tight election margins and late night vote-counting that bleed intoÂ morning]. And Trumpâs visit last night was certainly geared toward Election Day turnout, James. Good enough for theÂ majority. If it is really close, it might not be 'till Friday at the earliest! Hey gang! ABC News. Jon Ossoff (D) 49.98%, Raphael Warnock (D) 50.40% It is not true, at least on any significant basis There was one county that had some problems -- Columbia County -- but those were both resolved in a timely fashion, and voters were able to vote on a paper ballot in theÂ interim.

The 2020–21 United States Senate election in Georgia was held on November 3, 2020 and on January 5, 2021 (as a runoff), to elect the Class II member of the United States Senate to represent the State of Georgia. It takes election officials time to process and tally mail ballots ... and at least a million of them have been returned for the runoffs.

Live election results: Georgia Senate runoff on Jan. 5, 2021 U.S. Senate majority at stake in Georgia races Marc But is it? There are still a lot of metro Atlanta area votes to beÂ counted. David Perdue is still very narrowly ahead of Jon Ossoff in the regularÂ election. The last 8 weeks both parties have built unprecedented ground games, and $500 million has gone up on the airwaves bombarding Georgians with TV ads. Real-time 2021 Georgia election results will be posted here starting January 5. Zach I'm afraid I'm not familiar with thoseÂ rules. It's hard to draw any conclusions without that information â folks I talked to before today said they were watching that region above all othersÂ tonight.

Not making a prediction here, but top Democratic insiders in Georgia and Washington are looking at the outstanding votes in DeKalb County and feeling very bullish about the prospects of a 50-50Â Senate. For decades, the two suburban giants voted in tandem, almost always delivering solid Republican margins. This dual Georgia runoff scenario was always a quietly discussed possibility starting right after Sen. Johnny Isaksonâs resignation in 2019, given Georgia's runoff law requiring 50 percent plus one to win in November. Polls have been closed for a little over 2 hours. I do not know if that trend will continue, but a split decision is something that operatives in both parties were seeing as a possibility in the final days. ), Something to keep a close eye on tonight: based on the (still very early!!) Estimated vote counts are provided by the Associated Press and informed by past turnout, advance votes cast and early returns. So while we wait on DeKalb, we still have to wonder how much of the remaining pie it represents. When you run out of TV airtime, you have to find another way to spend all thisÂ money.

Looks like about 22,000 votes have been reported so far. Teresa It took me 5.5 hours to get from Atlanta to Savannah over the weekend. The state reports that 128 of 159 counties have reported complete returns. Tonight Iâm looking at the results out of Georgiaâs rural counties, places Democrats once all but conceded to Republicans but have poured lots of money and resources into this time around. With 76% of the expected vote in, Republican David Perdue leads Democrat Jon Ossoff, 50.7% to 49.3%. Good point Maya. Charlie I'm pretty sure it won't take a lot to get people hyperventilatingÂ tonight... Exit polls, Charlie and Zach. It was first published on Jan. 5, 2021. That's the deadline for when ballots from certain military and overseas voters have to be received, as long as the deadline for when voters can fix -- or cure -- deficiencies on theirÂ ballot, And of course, if the races are within 0.5 percentage points, we could see a recount drag things even further, as we did in Georgia for the presidentialÂ race, I have heard some hopeful to see a call as early as Marc described. Raffensperger talked openly that when Sen. Perdue called for him to resign, that's when the death threatsÂ arrived.

Steven Especially if Democrats manage to (somehow) retake the Senate. Peach State voters will decide whether Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler return to Washington or if Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock take their place. At his rally in Dalton last night, President Trump was very transparently trying to make these runoffs a referendum on his push for Republicans to object to the certification of theÂ election. But both left the fold in 2016 to give Hillary Clinton narrow victories and haven't lookedÂ back. The presidential race in November had just under 5m votes (the Senate races were a little lower than that). But if DeKalb comes in at the amount that's left and if the candidates get the same rates of support as they did in November, it would give Ossoff 145k votes.

Despite the messaging mishaps over the past few weeks, Trump is still their biggest asset.Â, To Jamesâs point about Black voter turnout, if African-American ballots are 30% of the share of vote, itâs an indicator of a likely Democratic winÂ, The first returns are in, everybody panic!!! Election results provided by the Associated Press. Still no runoff day votes in in the metro Atlanta area though, right Charlie? Steven Perdue has made that precise point repeatedly on the campaign trail. But it's a lot ofÂ it, A random observation: Right now, Bubba McDonald, the incumbent Republican in a runoff tonight for a public service commission seat, is running ahead of both Loeffler and Perdue in terms of raw vote, despite the fact there's roughly 40,000 less votes cast in hisÂ race. Is there a face-in-hands emoji on here, Zach, Our friend Eric Geller is not with us right now, but he'd tell you all the importance of a paperÂ backup, It asks "is it true that voting machines 'stopped working' earlier in Georgia today?" Great to be back together again. Andrew Yep, that's definitely true. — Fred Smith (@fredosmithjr) January 6, 2021. He spent a lot of time in these runoffs outside Atlanta trying to improve his image/perception all around theÂ state, Maya Stylistically, Ossoff seems more suited to metro Atlanta thanÂ Valdosta, Over a million votes in and reported, now ... so we're a quarter(ish) of the wayÂ there, During the November elections, Perdue escaped being defined. Elena Speaking of which, in the privacy and sanctity of the voting booth, do you think Republican Sec of State Brad Raffensperger pulls the GOP lever for Perdue and Loeffler after they both threw him under the bus? A number of Democratic and voting rights groups even opened field offices in places like Valdosta in Lowndes County, to show that they feel the entire state is in play. Itâs hard to overstate the importance of the outcome of these races. So they're placing a big bet on turnout today, and hoping that their ground game ensures limited dropÂ off, Democrats needed that high early turnout and the stronger percentage of Black voters in early voting to stand a chance tonight. Hello and welcome to POLITICOâs Georgia Senate runoff live chat. Here's the latest from the Georgia Secretary of State's office.
