Georgia Senate Runoff 2021 Early Voting
A runoff election is a second election, where the top two vote-getters run against each other. The Runoff elections are done when no candidate meets a certain threshold of votes to be declared the winner. So, Georgia election law requires a candidate to win a majority of votes (50%+1) to be elected to the U.S. Senate. If no candidate wins with a majority of votes, a runoff election of the top two candidates is held to elect a member of high vote percentage.
