The Secretary of State’s office reports that an estimated quarter of a million votes have already been cast this morning. Average wait time across the state is just over one minute.
About a dozen voters waited in line on a dreary, overcast morning at First Iconium Baptist Church on Moreland Drive in the DeKalb portion of Atlanta to vote in the U.S. Senate runoff. The wait was roughly 15 minutes to cast ballots. There were 266 ballots cast by 9:35 a.m. Fulton County is providing wait times at its precincts at this link, with most no waits. DeKalb County has an interactive map to find a voter’s precinct and the wait time at that precinct at this link.
Polls have been open for nearly two hours in the U.S. Senate runoff election between Democratic incumbent Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker. Gabriel Sterling, COO of the Georgia Secretary of State’s office, reports on social media that the average wait time across the state is only two minutes. Our staff members who have already voted this morning report no wait at Peachtree Middle School and three minutes at Morningside Baptist Church. The Dunwoody Library was reporting wait times of about 30 minutes. Approximately 75 people were in line around 8 a.m. but the lines hadn’t extended beyond the doors. More than 1.8 million Georgians cast ballots during early voting last week.
