Kenneson: What are elections for anyway?

Posted: Wednesday, November 6, 2019 10:32 am

A year ago today, Election Day had come and gone, and 4 million Georgians had cast a vote in the governor’s race. But we still didn’t know who our next governor would be. Hang-ups in the voting system meant Brian Kemp didn’t declare victory until Nov. 7.

That meant Nov. 6 was spent in limbo. Many felt like this election was a referendum on what Georgia was, whether the leader of our purple state would be a black woman pushing expanded health care and voting rights or drawling white man in blue jeans hawking limited government.
