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).

From Axios:

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.
