Early voting in Georgia’s 2022 primary election is off to a fast start.
More than 539,000 Georgians have voted so far, about triple the number who voted during the same period in the 2018 election.
Republicans are outpacing Democrats in number of votes. Since this is a primary election, members of the same party are running against each other, and party totals do not have any bearing on the results.
There is plenty of room for the numbers to climb. A few counties have had about 13% of registered voters cast ballots. Union County has the highest turnout.
