The 2020 United States presidential election in Georgia was held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, as part of the 2020 United States elections in which all 50 states plus the District of Columbia participated.[2] Georgia voters chose electors to represent them in the Electoral College via a popular vote, pitting the Republican Party's nominee, incumbent President Donald Trump, and running mate Vice President Mike Pence against Democratic Party nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden, and his running mate California Senator Kamala Harris. Georgia has 16 electoral votes in the Electoral College.[3]

Biden narrowly won the Peach State by a margin of 0.26%. Leading up to the election, Georgia was seen as a key swing state in both the presidential and senatorial elections—both a regular Class II U.S. Senate election and a special election—due to the rapid growth and diversification of Atlanta's suburbs, where Republicans were once dominant. Polls of the state throughout the campaign indicated a close race, and prior to election day most news organizations considered Georgia a toss-up.

Like in other states, Trump had an early lead on election night due to the state counting in-person votes first on that day, before counting mail-in ballots over the following days. Biden subsequently cut into Trump's margins over the course of the week and eventually overtook Trump on Friday morning. Although Burke County flipped to Trump after supporting Hillary Clinton in 2016, Biden was able to build Hillary Clinton's margins in the suburban counties of Gwinnett, Cobb, and Henry, achieving 58%, 56%, and 59%, respectively. These margins helped him narrowly win the state.

Due to the close margins in the initial election results, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced on November 11 that a full recount by hand would be conducted.[4] The recount was completed on November 18,[5][6] and Biden was confirmed to be the winner on November 19.[7] Biden became the first Democrat to carry the state since Bill Clinton in 1992,[8] as well as the first Democrat to win a statewide election in Georgia since 2006.[9] Additionally, Biden became the first Democrat to carry a state in the Deep South since Clinton in 1996. This is also the first time since 1992 that Georgia voted to the left of neighboring Florida and the first time since 2000 that Georgia voted more Democratic than also-neighboring North Carolina. This is the first presidential race in Georgia that a Democrat has won that was both a direct head-to-head race, and without a native politician as the Democratic nominee since 1960. It was also the first time since 1860 that Laurens County and Monroe County didn't vote for the statewide winner.[10]

Turnout[edit]

Voter registration for the 2020 general elections ended on October 5 in Georgia, with a final total of 7,233,584 active registered voters,[25] an increase of 1,790,538 new voters since the 2016 election and 805,003 new voters since the 2018 gubernatorial election. Absentee mail ballots were first sent out on September 15. Unlike the June 9 combined primary, Georgia Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, declined to mail out absentee ballot request forms for the November 3 election, and instead established a website for registered voters to apply for an absentee ballot;[26] in addition, third-party non-profit organizations such as the Voter Participation Center sent out over 2.2 million absentee request forms to registered voters by mail, including to voters who did not have computers nor Internet access.[27] 1,731,117 absentee ballots were requested by mail or online by voters by the deadline of October 23. The Secretary of State's office allowed counties to install multiple drop boxes for absentee voters to bypass the postal system, on the condition that the drop boxes be installed on county government property and surveilled with 24-hour cameras.

Early in-person voting began on October 12. Complaints regarding hours-long early-voting lines soon arose across the state, especially in Metro Atlanta counties; state officials attributed the long durations of lines to voter enthusiasm and lack of preparation by county boards of elections.

Raffensperger recorded 126,876 votes having been cast early or absentee across the state on October 12, a record turnout for the first day of early voting in a Georgia general election.[28] The record turnout continued throughout the first week, with 1,555,622 having been cast by October 19. By October 21, 2,124,571 votes had been cast, over 50% of total votes cast in the 2016 election, and by October 30, over 50% of registered voters had cast their ballots.

Results[edit]

Following the November 3 general election, voters whose mail-in ballots were rejected could submit corrections until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 6.[29][30]

Counties that flipped from Democratic to Republican

By congressional district

Statewide audit and recount[edit]

On November 11, the Secretary of State of Georgia announced there would be a full statewide audit of each of the nearly 5 million ballots by hand, to be completed by November 20, 2020.[31] On November 15, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, denounced Trump's criticism of the state's recount process.[32] During this audit, it was discovered that Fayette County had missed tabulating 2,755 votes, Floyd County had about 2,600 ballots that were never scanned, Douglas County failed to include a memory card from an Election Day precinct that included 156 votes, and Walton County discovered a memory card with 284 votes. The final statewide result from the completed audit is Biden with 2,475,141 votes and Trump with 2,462,857 votes, a spread of 12,284 votes. The result before the audit had been Biden with 2,473,383 votes and Trump with 2,459,825.[33] therefore, the results of the recount netted Trump 1,274 votes.

While the audit was ongoing, the Republican Senator of South Carolina, Lindsey Graham, privately called Raffensperger to discuss Georgia's vote counting.[34][35][36] Raffensperger told The Washington Post that Graham had asked Raffensperger whether Raffensperger could disqualify all mail-in ballots in counties with more signature errors.[35] Gabriel Sterling, a Republican election official and staffer to Raffensperger, was present in the call; Sterling confirmed that Graham had asked that question.[36] Raffensperger viewed Graham's question as a suggestion to throw out legally-cast ballots, while Graham denied suggesting thus.[35] Graham acknowledged calling Raffensperger to find out how to "protect the integrity of mail-in voting" and "how does signature verification work"; but if Raffensperger "feels threatened by that conversation, he's got a problem".[35] Graham stated that he was investigating in his own capacity as a senator, although he is the head of the Senate Judiciary Committee.[37]

The results of the election were officially certified on November 20, 2020.[38]

The Trump campaign had until November 24, 2020, to request a recount of the results. Unlike the statewide audit of each individual ballot by hand, the recount would involve a re-scanning of the voting machines.[39] They filed a petition formally seeking the recount on November 21.[40]

Disputes[edit]

There have been several disputes related to the results of the election and several lawsuits are ongoing. On November 19, Judge Steven D. Grimberg, a federal judge who was appointed by Trump in 2019, denied the Trump campaign's request to have further delay in the certification of the election results in Georgia.[41] On November 25, 2020, teenage conservative activist, C. J. Pearson, filed a suit against the Governor of Georgia and other state officials (Pearson v. Kemp).[42]

On November 30, Gabriel Sterling, a top election official for the Georgia Secretary of State, gave a press conference in which he denounced death threats made against an election technician. Sterling appealed to President Trump: "Stop inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence. Someone's going to get hurt, someone's going to get shot, someone's going to get killed, and it's not right."[43]

Electors[edit]

On November 20, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger certified Georgia's electors for Biden.[44] The Democratic Party of Georgia announced the following electors to formally cast their vote for Biden:[45]

Primary elections[edit]

The presidential preference primary was originally scheduled for March 24, 2020. On March 14, it was moved to May 19 due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.[46] On April 9, the preference primary was again rescheduled to June 9, being combined with the regular, usually-separate primary for other federal and state primaries as well as local elections in some counties, the first time in Georgia history that all primaries were combined on the same date.[47] Secretary of State Raffensperger approved sending out absentee ballot application forms to 6.9 million active voters for the combined primary, of which 1.1 million absentee ballots were requested.

Republican primary[edit]

Incumbent President Donald Trump ran unopposed in the Republican primary, and thus received all of Georgia's 76 delegates to the 2020 Republican National Convention.[48]

More than 200,000 votes were also cast by mail in the March 24 presidential preference primary before it was cancelled amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. These votes were not included in the official primary result, however they were separately counted.[51] Voters who participated in the March 24 primary were able to vote again in the June 9 primary for all other offices.[52]
