By the best way, the rumors that Georgia is doing an enormous voter purge earlier than the runoff are false:
At 6: rumors flying on social media – unfold by influencers on instagram & tiktok – claiming folks r being purged from GA’s voter registration rolls earlier than runoff. State election officers say it’s 100% false. By federal regulation – they can not take away anybody 90 days earlier than an election

Republicans sounded the alarms earlier than the presidential election about Georgia, they usually turned to be right. Joe Biden carried the state. Republicans are once more sounding the identical alarms concerning the runoff elections. Trump has started a civil war between Republicans in Georgia, and plenty of Trump supporters are selecting to write down in Trump’s title as an alternative of voting for both Republican Senate incumbent.
The Senate runoffs are exhibiting indicators of the identical sample that turned Georgia blue for Joe Biden. Absentee ballots favor Democrats within the state. Republicans might should depend on an enormous identical day particular election turnout.
There’s a large drawback brewing in Georgia for Republicans. Anybody who assumes that these elections will likely be formalities and that the Republicans are assured of management of the Senate haven’t been paying consideration.
