Voting in Georgia’s 2022 primary election got off to a blazing start.

More than 857,000 Georgians voted during the early voting period, about triple the number who voted during the same period in the 2018 election.

Republicans outpaced 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.

A few counties exceeded 20% turnout. Bacon County had the highest turnout during the early voting period.

More than 90% of early voters have gone to polling location to vote in-person. Mail-in ballots were much less popular.
