Capital: Atlanta

Total electors: Sixteen.

How Georgia votes: Red, but might swing this year. Georgia has voted only Republican since 1996.

Demographic breakdown: 59.7 percent White, 30.5 percent African-American and 3.2 percent Asian-American.

Fun fact: Until the last day of September 2020, Donald Trump was leading in the opinion polls in Georgia, as one would expect in a Red state. But recent numbers in October show that Joe Biden has managed to get a very small lead over Trump, indicating a possibility of Georgia swinging to the Democrats this election.
