InsiderAdvantage relies on the website www.georgiavotes.com to follow early vote tallies before the Dec. 4th runoff election day. A majority of the low turnout continues to be older and presumably Republican-leaning white voters.
As of Friday night, 279,755 people voted early. At this point in the 2018 general (the final week of early voting), that number was 641,515. The numbers reveal approximately 84.4 percent of people casting early votes are white and over 50 years of age. Unlike during the early voting before the Nov. 6th general election, a large Democrat early vote didn’t materialize, especially among African-American voters. That doesn’t bode well for John Barrow and Lindy Miller, the Democrat candidates for secretary of state and Public Service Commission.
