Warnock vs. Walker: Voting begins in Georgia
WASHINGTON (NEXSTAR) – The midterm elections are less than a month away and in some states voters are already casting their ballots.
Georgia opened early voting on Monday, giving voters a chance to get involved in one of the most closely watched races in the country. Georgia leaders are hoping voters will head to this election.
“I want to encourage everyone to create an early voting plan,” said Senator Jon Ossoff, D-Ga.
Elijah Grace of The New Georgia Project is optimistic the state will see many voters turn out.
“Georgia is at a critical moment here,” Grace said.
The race for the high stakes in the Georgia Senate could decide which party holds the majority. Incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock is fighting for his seat and Republican Hershel Walker is trying to take it.
The two candidates faced off in a NewsNation debate on Friday night, with each delivering their arguments to voters.
“It’s a huge responsibility. One that humbles me and inspires me to work as hard as I can every day for hard working families,” Warnock said.
“If we give Senator Warnock six more years, think of what will become of this country,” Walker said. “I’m not sure we can make amends.”
Grace says he and his team of organizers are trying to educate voters about how impactful this race and others could be in Georgia.
“I think the excitement is there, but my team, we go out there every day to engage people and we’re just trying to make sure we build on that excitement,” he said.
He hopes their pitch will get voters to the polls by November 8.
“We encouraged people and let them know that not just the senatorial race, every race is vital. And we have to make sure everyone votes,” Grace said.
