Early voting in Georgia starts Monday, Dec. 14, for the two U.S. Senate seats that will determine the power of the Senate for years to come.

The two Republican candidates will perform well in Northwest Georgia, a reliably Republican part of the state. However, the two races are sure to be neck-and-neck statewide.

Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler — appointed to her seat by Gov. Brian Kemp after Sen. Johnny Isakson stepped down due to health concerns — and Sen. David Perdue both have serious competition.

Loeffler will face the Rev. Raphael Warnock, activist and senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s former church. Perdue will face Jon Ossoff, a former investigative journalist and filmmaker.

Republicans need one of the Georgia seats for a majority. Democrats must win both to yield a 50-50 Senate, with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris then holding the tie-breaking vote.

Voters can check their registration status, polling places and other information on the Georgia Secretary of State's website.
