More than 3 million Georgians have already cast their ballot during the early voting period, according to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. His office expects record turnout to continue through Election day.

So far, more than 73 million Americans have already voted, absentee or by mail, and Trump and Biden are trying to energize the millions more who will vote in person on Tuesday.

While the Election Day vote traditionally favors Republicans and early votes tend toward Democrats, the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 227,000 people in the United States, has injected new uncertainty about the makeup of the electorate.
