Opinion: Protesting the runoff over issues of fairness
Voters wait in line on the afternoon of Oct. 12, 2020, at a downtown Gainesville building at 100 Brenau Ave., one of eight early voting locations in Hall County. Oct. 12 was the first day of early voting in the Nov. 3 elections. - photo by Thomas Hartwell

As a supporter of President Trump, I don’t believe the Georgia election was fair and I question the results. 

As a way to protest, in future elections, including the Jan. 5 Senate runoff, I’m either not going to vote or I’ll just write in the president’s name. I hope you’ll do the same.
