A federal judge just issued a 43-page ruling with a split decision involving rejected ballots in the Georgia governor race. #gapol
The judge denied @staceyabrams request to count provisional ballots that were cast outside their county of residence, and accepted her request to require all counties to accept absentee ballots with errors or omissions in voters’ birthdates. #gapol
It’s not immediately clear how many ballots the ruling will effect. Gwinnett County was already ordered to accept absentee ballots with birthdate errors, and county officials said more than 300 could be affected. Kemp’s campaign pegged the number at around 400. #gapol
If the judge had granted the request for to accept the out-of-county provisionals, it would have affected a far larger trove of votes. Fulton County alone rejected nearly 1k. #gapol
It will take plenty more ballots for @staceyabrams to move the needle. With all but one county (Gwinnett) certifying their vote, Abrams needs to net roughly 17,700 votes to force @BrianKempGA into a runoff. #gapol
Here’s the full story from the great @TIAreports #gapol…
The reax from @BrianKempGA campaign: “This ruling solidifies Brian Kemp's insurmountable lead. The election is over and Brian Kemp is the Governor-elect.” #gapol
Abrams campaign manager @gwlauren calls the ruling “a major victory for Georgia voters and the Abrams campaign in the fight to ensure every eligible vote is counted and every voice is heard.” #gapol
