ATLANTA — All Voting is Local Georgia State Director Kristin Nabers issued the following statement in response to Gwinnett County voters who needlessly had their provisional ballots rejected:
“Today, we learned that 48 would-be – and should-be – Gwinnett County voters had their properly cast out-of-precinct provisional ballots rejected due to errors in accompanying paperwork as required under SB 202. It’s clear from the outset that SB 202 was unnecessary and continues to sow chaos into Georgia’s ability to run a smooth and accessible election.
“Sadly, what happened in Gwinnett exemplifies SB 202’s unjust burden on election officials and voters alike. As we head into the runoff, poll workers deserve clear guidance that allows them to perform their responsibilities while letting Georgians exercise their constitutional right to vote.”
