ATLANTA (Reuters) - As Georgia wrapped up weeks of early voting on Friday for the Nov. 3 election, Black voter turnout had far surpassed the level seen at the same time in 2016.
Some 1 million Black voters have already cast ballots this year, up from 712,000 this time four years ago, according to TargetSmart, a Democratic analytics firm.
In Swainsboro, Georgia, the tiny election registration office building was the only early voting precinct, limiting entry to five voters at a time.
Rashad Muneer, 31, a Black real estate investor and musician, also voted in South Fulton on Thursday.
To be an activist doesn’t mean just protesting, but engaging all your civic duties, including voting,” he said.
