The 2020 United States Senate election in Georgia will be held on November 3, 2020, to elect a member of the United States Senate to represent the State of Georgia, concurrently with the 2020 U.S. presidential election, as well as other elections to the United States Senate in other states and elections to the United States House of Representatives and various state and local elections. The incumbent is Republican David Perdue, who was first elected in 2014 and is running for a second term in the class 2 seat. Georgia's other senator Johnny Isakson announced his resignation in 2019, so there will also be a concurrent special election for the class 3 seat.
