Asian American Groups Battle Fake News, Mobilize Georgia Voters For Senate Runoffs

Georgia flipped blue during the 2020 presidential election. Organizers are hoping to keep the momentum going during the January runoffs.

President-elect Joe Biden led Georgia with less than 13,000 votes, and that’s in part thanks to a larger voter turnout within the Asian American community.

But election season isn’t over yet for Georgia, with two Senate runoff elections coming up in January. Reset checks in with organizers in Chicago and Atlanta to discuss their “get out the vote” efforts.
