Voters in Georgia are the center of attention in America.

All eyes are on the southern state of Georgia, where the future of the United States Senate will be decided on Tuesday with the election of the two senators who will represent this territory.

But not only that, the result will have important implications in the development of the presidency of Joe Biden and in how much the Democrat will be able to achieve in his first term.

Why are these elections in Georgia?

Under the rules of that state, for a candidate for senator to be declared the winner needs 50% of the votes and in November none got them.

Then, the two candidates who got the most votes went on to a kind of second round that takes place on January 5.
