Kerry Washington, Alyssa Milano and Others Offer to Help Georgia Voters Reach Polls

Voters are headed to the polls in Georgia today for the U.S. Senate runoff elections that will decide whether the upper chamber is controlled by the Republicans or Democrats in a crucial day for the upcoming presidency.

Incumbent Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are against Democrat challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock in a race that is expected to be tight.

If either Perdue or Loeffler manage to retain their seat, the GOP will hold a narrow majority in the Senate, making it difficult for the new Joe Biden administration to pass legislation.

Georgia voting rights activist Stacey Abrams has been tirelessly advocating for voters to get out in the state and she is backed by numerous pro-Biden celebrities who have been urging their fans to vote Democrat.

Many celebrities have been offering help in terms of getting voters rides to polling stations and promoting donations.

Scandal actress Kerry Washington has shared a number for voters to call if they need a ride.

"Hey. If you need a ride to the polls tomorrow. Or your friends may need a ride to the polls in Georgia...text me! 718-400-7118!" Washington tweeted.
