Georgia’s Polls Are Closed — Now What?

Georgia's Polls Are Closed -- Now What?

( – The country has been awaiting the results of Georgia’s Senate runoff election on pins and needles for weeks. The outcome of this race will determine the balance of power in the Senate for at least two years.

As of January 6, Raphael Warnock (D-GA) is the projected winner over Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), and Jon Ossoff (D-GA) is the projected winner over Sen. David Perdue (R-GA). Decision Desk HQ, an election monitoring source used by Newsmax and other reliable media outlets, called the elections at 11:13 p.m. Eastern on January 5 and at 2:14 a.m. Eastern, respectively.

However, it’s important to remember that the media and polling organizations don’t decide the outcome of elections. Georgia election officials have not certified the results of either election yet.

Additionally, Purdue’s campaign posted a statement at 2:22 AM reminding voters it will take time to determine the final election results. It also vowed to ensure that “all legally cast ballots” get counted. Once that happens, the campaign expects Sen. Perdue will be declared the official winner.
