News Minute: Nearly a third of Cobb voters have early voted

View descriptionShare

By the time early voting ended Friday, nearly one in every three Cobb County voters had already cast a ballot in the runoff election between U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock, a Democrat, and Republican challenger Herschel Walker.

More than 155,510 Cobb voters, or 30.4%, have voted early in person or by absentee ballot, according to data from the Secretary of State’s office.

That turnout rate surpasses the state at-large, where 1,852,593 voters, or 26.4%, have cast a ballot.

Early voting totals in Cobb weren’t as high as before the Nov. 8 general election, but voters had far less time to cast a ballot — one week before the runoff, as opposed to three weeks before the general election.

That resulted in single-day totals that blew past the previous election. Last Monday, for example, saw over 27,000 voters cast a ballot in person, resulting in long lines at some Cobb polling locations. On Friday, the county said 29,699 people voted early.
