A special election was held to elect a Senator from the U.S. state of Georgia in two rounds on November 3, 2020; and January 5, 2021. It was held because Republican Class III Senator Johnny Isakson resigned. Raphael Warnock got the most votes with 32.9%, and Kelly Loeffler came in second with 25.9% in the first round. Because no one got more than 50% of votes, a second round was held between the two highest. Warnock is projected to win the second round of the election. The regular Class II election was also held on the same dates with two rounds.
