The Georgia state supreme court unanimously denied national and state Republican groups’ attempts to stop in-person early voting this Saturday, November 26, for the Peach State’s run-off between Sen. Raphael Warnock (D) and Herschel Walker (R).
In an order Wednesday, all justices agreed to deny Republicans’ request to overturn two lower court rulings, which determined counties may in fact hold in-person early voting this Saturday, following a lawsuit from Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) and Democratic groups.
Democrats sued after Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office originally said counties could not hold Saturday early voting the weekend after Thanksgiving, citing a preexisting law that prohibits early voting the days after a holiday.
Counties are by law granted leeway to decide whether or not to hold additional early voting, beyond the required Mon.-Fri. Nov. 28-Dec. 2.
Almost two dozen counties have announced plans to hold early voting on Saturday. Early voting has already begun in some Georgia counties.
