Georgia Supreme Court upholds Saturday’s vote in US Senate runoff |  PA

ATLANTA — The Georgia Supreme Court unanimously rejected an appeal by the Republican Party that sought to prevent early voting Saturday in the United States Senate runoff.

The brief ruling by the state supreme court on Wednesday clears the way for weekend voting opportunities in at least 19 counties that plan to open polling places two days after the Thanksgiving holiday. Early voting will be required statewide Monday through Friday next week.
