More Georgia equipment problems delayed absentee ballot count

The counting of absentee ballots in a crucial Atlanta suburb was held up early Wednesday by continued problems with some of Georgia’s new election machinery, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Tabulating ended around 3 a.m., with approximately 4,400 absentee-by-mail ballots that arrived on Tuesday left to count and about 1,000 provisional ballots to be addressed, Gwinnett County spokesperson Joe Sorenson told POLITICO later in the day. “Work on the software issue that caused the Election Night reporting issue is expected to begin later today,” he added.

President Donald Trump was holding on to a 1.1-percentage-point lead in the state over Democrat Joe Biden as of about 7 p.m. Wednesday.

The Journal-Constitution said the problem in Gwinnett County affected about 80,000 mailed-in absentee ballots, some of which could not be read by the county’s scanners.
