Congressman Rick Allen handily carried his re-election effort in Georgia’s 12th Congressional district Tuesday night.

Allen’s 125,527 early votes overshadowed his 54,343 on Election Day as did Johnson’s 100,799 votes in early voting compared to 26,979 on Election Day.

Allen’s early vote totals were 230% of his Election Day votes while Johnson’s early vote totals were 373% of her Election Day totals.
