Early voting for Tuesday's General Election ended Friday, Nov. 2.

ATLANTA -- The Secretary of State's Office said early voting hit a new all-time record.

Early voting for Tuesday's General Election ended Friday, Nov. 2.

“In Georgia, it is easy to vote and hard to cheat, and I am incredibly proud of this new record showing strong voter engagement leading up to tomorrow’s election,” said Secretary Brian Kemp, who is also the Republican candidate for governor. “This milestone is a testament to the hard work of thousands of election officials all across Georgia who are dedicated to secure, accessible, and fair elections for all.”
