The risk of reading Georgia’s early voting numbers too broadly

Herschel Walker will face off against incumbent Sen. Raphael G. Warnock (D) for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. Trump’s team sent out a link to a right-wing website arguing that early voting numbers from the state favored Walker. During the 2020 election, there was a partisan divide on early voting. During the 2021 runoff in Georgia, more than a million ballots were cast by mail. In November, the number of mail ballots dropped significantly, to less than a quarter of the number the year prior.
