Hello People of Georgia,
There will be a runoff election for both Senate seats in Georgia this coming January 5.
Important dates to remember are:
- November 18: Earliest day for a registrar to mail an absentee ballot for the general election runoff
- December 7: Voter registration deadline to vote in the federal runoff election
- December 14: Advanced in-person or early voting begins for the general election runoff for federal offices
- January 5, 2021: Federal runoff election day
This election will be crucial because if the 2 democratic candidates win, that will make the number of senators in the US Senate even, 50 Democrats and 50 Republicans. If a vote is tied, the tie will be broken by the Vice President who will be Kamala Harris. What makes this so important is that the Senate under Mitch McConnell has been uncompromising in blocking legislation for the American people passed in the House of Representatives. This happened during the Obama administration and would most likely happen during the Biden administration if McConnell retains control of the Senate. It would allow McConnell to interfere with President Biden’s efforts to curb the COVID epidemic and bring back the economy. McConnell has shown that he is more interested in his political power and the financial interests of his rich oligarch friends including Russian oligarchs tied to the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin than in the well-being of ordinary Americans. President Biden will be faced with the daunting task of cleaning up the mess left behind by Trump and his gang and will need every resource to accomplish this for us Americans. Joe Biden has shown his desire to bring together the American people of all political opinions and work for all of us. But if McConnell and his gang work against the American people that will further polarize America between the dishonest Trumpish Right and the extreme Left. So, people of Georgia, America is depending on you. ELECT JON OSSOFF and REVEREND RAPHAEL WARNOCK TO THE SENATE TO BRING AMERICA TOGETHER, TO DEFEAT COVID, AND TO BRING HONESTY, CIVILITY, AND BALANCE BACK TO THE GOVERNMENT OF AMERICA.
