Two days after we sued the Georgia Secretary of State over the “exact match” law that has frozen more than 53,000 voter registration applications -- 80% of which belong to people of color -- we learned that Gwinnett County has been rejecting absentee ballots and ballot requests at a rate four times higher than the state. And in Gwinnett County, Asian-American voters are being rejected at the highest rate of all.
Most concerning are the large number of ballot and ballot requests that have been rejected because a voter’s signature is not similar enough to the signature that the state has on file. These voters are not given any notice before their applications or ballots are rejected. That means some voters may not find out their ballots have been rejected until after Election Day when it is too late to fix the problem.
We have stepped up to fight this unfair process in court and are demanding that absentee voters be given notice of any signature mismatch issues before their applications or ballots are rejected.
We also want to assure you that can still vote even if your absentee ballot or application has been rejected. This advisory is to answer questions about steps to take to make sure your vote is counted.
