AUGUSTA, Ga. (WFXG) - Sunday is the new Saturday when it comes to advance voting in Augusta-Richmond County.  Monday, the Board of Elections met to vote on opening precincts Sunday November 27th to allow for advance voting.  This comes after a judge on Friday said Georgia law allowed counties to offer early voting on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which is the only possibility for Saturday voting before next month’s Senate runoff election.  Republican Herschel Walker and Democrat Raphael Warnock will square off once again December 6th.

Election night left the candidates at a standstill, each receiving 49% of the vote. The runoff race is set for Dec. 6. Early voting will be available Nov. 28 through Dec. 2.

You can find a list of early voting locations on the Secretary of State website.
