By the numbers: Demographic shifts have worked against Republicans’ hold in Georgia, Axios’ Stef Kight reports.
Nearly a third of Georgians are Black, and white people’s share of the population has fallen significantly in the past two decades.
With the pandemic and push toward early voting, white early voting has increased 64% in Georgia compared to the same point in 2016, according to TargetSmart. But early ballots cast by Black voters has increased 88%.
While they together make up less than 5% of early votes cast so far, Hispanic American and Asian American early voting has increased 227% and 277%, respectively.
