Georgia’s voting system implementation manager Gabriel Sterling said Monday that Georgians ought to “turn out and vote” in tomorrow’s Senate runoff elections “if you care about the values and direction of the nation you want to see.”

President Donald Trump sued Brad Raffensperger a few days before the phone call in which he told the Georgia secretary of state to “find” votes for him that is now being scrutinized for potential wrongdoing.

In one of his final acts of 2020, Trump filed a Dec. 31 federal lawsuit against Raffensperger and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp in a last-ditch effort to force the state to “de-certify” its election result and allow its GOP-led legislature to declare the winner instead. U.S. District Court Judge Mark Cohen in Atlanta set a hearing in the case for Tuesday morning.
