Stacey Abrams says more than 750,000 Georgians have requested ballots for the Senate runoff election on Jan. 5.

“Request yours today and let’s get it done … again,” she tweeted.

Polling currently shows tight races between Democrat Raphael Warnock and Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Jon Ossoff and Sen. David Perdue. Ossoff, a Democrat, will need to make up the nearly 90,000 votes he ran behind the GOP incumbent on Nov. 3.

Georgia on Saturday certified Biden as the winner after a hand recount. Several news outlets have called the race for Biden. Newsmax has yet to project a winner, citing close races in several battleground states. President Donald Trump has refused to concede as his legal team continues to battle the counts in court.

Abrams, a voting rights activist and former candidate for governor, has been credited with boosting Democrats in the state.

She became a household name in 2018 when she narrowly lost her bid for governor in a race marked by allegations of voter suppression affecting mostly Black voters.
