Early voting in the US state of Georgia started this week and immediately long queues formed, with some people having to wait more than 10 hours to cast their vote.

There have been allegations of voter suppression, which the Georgia Secretary of State denied.

He blamed broadband problems, social distancing and record turnout for the queues.
