“Those who move to Georgia just to vote in the Senate runoffs with no intention of staying are committing a felony that is punishable with jail time and hefty fines,” Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said in a statement. “They will be found, they will be investigated, and they will be punished.”
The country is watching Georgia’s two runoff elections — Republican incumbent U.S. Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue versus Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, respectively — as national Republicans try to hold on to control of the Senate. Republicans currently hold 52 seats, and if both Warnock and Ossoff win, Democratic Vice President-elect Kamala Harris would be the tiebreaking vote to give Democrats the edge.
