Democrat Raphael Warnock will face Republican Herschel Walker after a long, and at times bitter, campaign.
On Tuesday, Georgia’s seven million registered voters will go to the polls for the fifth time in four years.
That’s thanks to a quirk in the state’s election law that requires winning candidates for state-wide posts in general elections not just to get more votes than everyone else, but to get fifty percent of the votes cast.
Twice in the past four years candidates from both parties have fallen short of that mark. Hence the need for a run-off election in 2021 for both Georgia’s US Senate seats and another one this time around.
