Nearly 1.2 million Georgia voters have already requested absentee ballots in the Jan. 5 U.S. Senate runoffs, including almost 80,000 already mailed ballots in Richmond, Chatham and Columbia counties.

Republican Kelly Loeffler will face off with Democrat Raphael Warnock, and Republican David Perdue will again go head to head with Democrat Jon Ossoff.
