Stay tuned to Breitbart News for live updates of the Georgia Senate runoff elections. Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff are trying to unseat Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.

Polls close at 7 PM Eastern.

All times Eastern.

6:15 PM: Warnock and Ossoff doing last-minute campaigning:

As the hours tick down on #GASenateRunoffs, @ReverendWarnock is doing “marathon call-ins” to Black talk radio, gospel radio in South Goergia & local TV stations. @ossoff is in the middle of 25 last-minute interviews with local press.

6:05 PM: Dems excited about DeKalb County:

NEW: Turnout today in heavily-Democratic DeKalb County, GA has now surpassed Election Day turnout for the November contest. DeKalb broke for Biden in the general election 83.1% to 15.7%.

— Brian Tyler Cohen (@briantylercohen) January 5, 2021

DeKalb election day turnout approaching 46k, if these figures are accurate, putting it on track to surpass the general. The big question, of course, is whether this simply augurs for a big D turnout (as this is a very D county) or a big Election Day turnout (the key to the GOP)

Republicans optimistic about Forsyth and Cherokee counties.

A few thing I’ll be looking for in GA:

Turnout in Forsyth County (Rs) and Clayton Clayton (Ds). I suspect the margins mirror November, but these are base rich voting centers.

Cobb and Gwinnett margins against Nov. presidential numbers.

% of Black voters compared to November.

5:59 PM: On CNN, Stacey Abrams says Democrats are on the way to a “permanent Democratic majority” in Georgia, which she says is now firmly a “battleground state.”

Abrams also says Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is “no hero” because he is not on the side of voters even though he is defending the election he ran last November.

Early voting statistics:

GEORGIA, what we know:

– Early voting: 3,093,375 votes have been cast per AP.

– Of those, 1,018,381 were mailed-in or electronically sent and 2,074,994 was early in-person.

– Advance votes in Nov. were 4,011,822 w another million ppl voting Election Day.

SO …

80% of Georgia’s Nov. vote happened before Election day.

Based on run-off early voting, if that holds, it would mean 773,343 votes likely in-person today.

That’s right around the *minimum* day-of turnout the GOP is hoping for, assuming that votes cast today favor them.

“Black Belt” areas could be more important:

On election night, the votes of Albany and the surrounding ‘Black Belt’ made a strong contribution to Pres. Elect Biden’s narrow win over Pres. Trump in Georgia. That area may prove to be even more pivotal in this week’s Senate election. #gapol https://t.co/KKYAzAf3sD
