Jon Ossoff Statement as Voting Begins in Georgia

Atlanta, Ga. — As absentee ballots are scheduled to be mailed to voters across the state this week, investigative journalist and Democratic U.S. Senate nominee in Georgia Jon Ossoff released the following statement:

“Georgians know what’s at stake in this election.

“President Trump and Senator David Perdue were fully briefed on the risk COVID-19 posed to our health and economy, but instead of leveling with us about the severity of the threat, they lied to us and downplayed the threat — all while Perdue traded medical and vaccine stocks and dumped his casino shares to line his own pockets. 

“I am running to mount an all-out assault on the corruption in Washington, to ensure every Georgian has affordable, accessible health care, and to put working families and small businesses first.

“I humbly urge Georgians to join me in voting early to turn the page on this dark chapter in our history, reunite our country, and build a more prosperous, healthy, and just America.”

The Georgia Secretary of State is required by law to mail the first wave of absentee ballot requests to voters between September 15-19. According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitutionover 1.1 million absentee ballots have already been requested. Voters can apply for an absentee ballot online here and check the status of their absentee ballot application here.
