Georgia's electoral votes

A candidate needs 270 electoral votes to win the election.

ATLANTA — Georgia has 16 electoral votes and the presidential candidate who wins the peach state will take them all.

Georgia was once a reliably Republican state but over the past two years, the state is shifting. In 2018, Democrat Stacey Abrams narrowly lost the governor’s race to Gov. Brian Kemp. Now, in the 2020 presidential race, Georgia has yet to be called.

The Electoral College ultimately decides the winner once all votes around the country are counted. A candidate needs 270 electoral votes to win the election.

Analysts have labeled Georgia a swing state or battleground state for this race.

In the days before the election, both President Donald Trump’s and former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaigns made multiple stops in Georgia. The day before the election, President Obama campaigned for Biden in Atlanta. On Sunday, President Trump held a rally in Rome, Ga.
