State Probing Why Some Georgia Voters Haven’t Been Sent Absentee Ballots
Georgia’s election board has begun an investigation after some Fulton County voters who requested absentee ballots by email never received them.
Voters tell WSB-TV that they can’t see any evidence from the state’s website that their requests for absentee ballots were ever processed.
This means those voters will have to go in person to polling sites — something election leaders have been urging people to avoid to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the station reports.
Georgia’s election director blames Fulton County for making poor decisions in how they process applications.
Fulton County officials said in a statement that they’ve processed “almost every” absentee ballot request, but have heard from some voters who submitted their request but have yet to receive their ballot.
