With less than three weeks until the midterm elections, Georgians are already casting their ballots at a fast pace -- with vote counts on Tuesday surpassing 2020 presidential election records for the second day of early voting, surging to nearly twice the early vote totals of 2018 at the same point.

As Georgia entered its third day of early in-person voting on Wednesday, over 291,700 people have voted -- 268,050 in person and 23,690 absentee.

In 2020, the early vote numbers after the second day were 266,403, and in 2018 they were 147,289, according to the secretary of state's office.

"This is a testament to the hard work of Georgia's election workers, the professionals who keep our elections convenient and secure.".

Georgia's second day of early voting totals marks a 75.3% increase from that same point in 2018 early midterm voting and an "astounding" 3.3% increase from the second day of early voting in the 2020 presidential election, the state's top elections official said.

People use voting machines to fill out and cast their ballots as early voting begins for the midterm elections at the Citizens Service Center in Columbus, Ga., Oct. 17, 2022.

Early voting in Georgia runs from Oct. 17th to Nov. 4th. »
