Georgia Court says "let folks early vote on Saturday!"

There will be early voting this Saturday in the state of Georgia.


A Georgia appeals court ruling late yesterday means that counties "can offer early voting this coming Saturday" in the U.S. Senate runoff election between Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican Herschel Walker.


Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger had told county election officials that early voting could not be held that day because state law says it is illegal on a Saturday if there is a holiday on the Thursday or Friday preceding it.


Warnock's campaign, along with the Democratic Party of Georgia and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, sued last week to challenge that guidance.


Thursday is Thanksgiving, and Friday is a state holiday. The Saturday following those two holidays is the only possibility for Saturday voting before the December 6th Senate runoff election between Warnock and Walker.
