Georgia US Senate Run-off Election 5 January 2021

 

Elections were held for both of Georgia’s US Senate seats on November 3, 2020. Both of these races are going to Runoff elections, to be held on January 5, 2021, as no candidate received at least 50% of the vote. Democrats need to win both of these seats to have a majority in the Senate so we can have progress in America and the world.

The two races are:

  • US Senate: Jon Ossoff (Democrat) versus David Perdue (Republican)

  • US Senate Special: Raphael Warnock (Democrat) versus Kelly Loeffler (Republican)

Both US Senate races in Georgia are going to a run-off election on January 5th, 2021. Ballots will not be available until Nov 21, GA has said they would send out ballot even if the recount isn't finished.
Here's what you should do:
💙 DA Global needs to raise funds for ads to support the GA Senate runoffs. We must turn out as many GA voters abroad as possible. Due to FEC rules, country committees cannot pay for the ads; only DA Global can. If you can give any amount to support this effort, that would be great! As proven, overseas voters are the margin of victory. Donate here: https://www.democratsabroad.org/georgia_runoff
 
🗳️ If you didn't vote in the November election, you can still vote in the run-off. Go to https://www.votefromabroad.org/ and request an absentee ballot or register to vote. Ask for your ballot to be sent to you by email. If you will be 18 years old by Jan 5, you can also vote.
 
🏴 If you voted in November, check your absentee ballot status: https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do
 

If it doesn't show that your absentee application has been received, you can still vote in the Runoff election but you will request a ballot at https://www.votefromabroad.org/ by Jan 5th. Ask for your ballot to be sent to you by email. If you will be 18 years old by Jan 5, you can also vote.
 
✍️ Fill out and mail back a Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot, FWAB at https://www.votefromabroad.org/fwab/. Ballot return to Georgia is by postal mail only, so hurry. Because of the mail disruptions from COVID and Christmas, voters should mail back their ballots ASAP. Regular mail may work in November, but by Dec it'll be too late and you should definitely use a courier. Because the FWAB isn't set up for 2 Senate races, here's an example FWAB showing how to fill it out:

 

FWAB Example:
 
 
☑️ Verify your ballot was accepted, and fix if needed. https://georgia.ballottrax.net/voter

Phonebank in Georgia for both the Ossoff and Warnock campaigns. More info https://www.mobilize.us/
These PhoneBanking campaigns currently require a US-based mobile phone number – or similar VoIP service like Google Voice, Skype In, or Line2 – to be able to signup for calling. We are working to locate other calling opportunities as well.
