Early-vote turnout soars in Georgia special election

download (13)Early voting in Georgia’s special House election closed Friday evening with over 140,000 ballots cast, with overall turnout looking likely to rise in Tuesday’s closely watched matchup between Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel.

The early voters in the second round include over 36,000 people who did not participate in April, according to data from the Georgia secretary of state’s office. That includes past voters who stayed home as well as newly registered voters who added their names to the rolls in Georgia’s 6th District after the primary.

The total number of voters on Tuesday is expected to surpass the high turnout in the first round, when over 192,000 voters cast ballots, including about 57,000 who voted early. The final turnout on Tuesday could easily exceed the vote total in the 2014 midterm elections, when over 210,500 people voted in the district.

    DO THEY HAVE VOTER ID THERE, OR CAN DEAD PEOPLE AND ILLEGALS VOTE?

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA AND CAN DE-CLASSIFY ANYTHING HE WANTS TO REGARDING GET THE JOB DONE. HE NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    WHY ARE ALL MUSLIM CAMPS CLOSE TO OUR MILITARY BASES?

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    THIS COUNTRY HAD BETTER WAKE UP QUICK.

    Does Georgia have voter ID that’s the only way to stop the multiple voter fraud it was awful here in Alabama. I was a pole watcher when a Headstart van full of senior citizens black white men and women came to the national guard armory and unloaded giving each one a name and address to sign up with so they could vote one of the seniors became confused after she voted and ask the man who was giving out the slips of paper where were they going to vote next he told her to be quiet and get back on the bus another lady told her we have two more poles to go before they feed us lunch. If thats just one incident of 30 people imagine what it must be like state wide if you don’t have a voter picture ID. It’s ironic you can come up with an ID for food stamps or government assistance but you can’t come up with one too Vote LOL

    If the Proud people of Georgia wants to make a difference in the way our country is going and have it go the right way vote republican. More good republicans are needed to replace these rogue democrats that run rough shod over the people in trying to bring in socialism, communism or something radical to keep the people in line. Vote for your freedoms to reign superior. Do not let the Democrats take away your freedoms. Fight with your vote for justice. Vote Republican. For the People.

    “The early voters in the second round include over 36,000 people who did not participate in April, according to data from the Georgia secretary of state’s office.

How many of the “newly registered” are “new residents” to both the country and the district? How many are still alive? How many bussed in from neighboring districts, and states? How many will vote again on Tuesday? Funny how Democrats will always seem to “find” votes when needed, except of course for Gore and Clinton.
    Have you also noticed no calls of “misogyny” and “holding women back” have been levied to the average white liberal male running against the Conservative female? Where is Pocahontas Warren now? Where are the cries for “more women in Congress”? Should there be a “woman’s march” in GA and beyond if she looses? I guess it’s okay for the “old white men” to rule over the females if they are not liobbies, right Kathy?
