ATLANTA — Georgia continues to set records for voter turnout for the upcoming general election as the country is just eight days away from Election Day.
“Georgia is a leader in election access,” said Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. “Notwithstanding the pandemic, voters in the Peach State can take advantage of no-excuse absentee ballot voting by mail or through a secure drop box; three weeks of early, in-person voting; or Election Day voting.”
Raffensperger addressed Georgians during a press conference at the State Capitol on Monday at 10 a.m. .
