Overall, nearly 415,000 people have voted so far, including 400,000 who submitted absentee-by-mail ballots.
Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is encouraging people to vote absentee and avoid human contact, but they can also choose to vote in person.
Some voters had to wait in lines Monday because of delays caused by social distancing, equipment cleaning and absentee ballot cancellations.
“No matter how you chose to vote, we want you to feel safe and comfortable,” Raffensperger said.
Georgians who originally planned to vote absentee but showed up to vote in person Monday contributed to lines, which lasted more than an hour at some metro Atlanta locations. Election officials had to cancel voters’ absentee ballots before they could vote in person.
At least 2,700 voters canceled their absentee ballots Monday and then voted in person, according to election records. That represents 18% of all in-person voters.
Overall, more people have cast Republican than Democratic ballots so far, 234,000 to 173,000. An additional 8,600 voters cast nonpartisan ballots.
