State of Georgia

Georgia Absentee Ballot Rejection

Georgia Democratic Party v. Raffensperger

Lawsuit filed on behalf of the Democratic Party of Georgia, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) challenging Georgia’s failure to ensure that voters receive prompt notification of their rejected absentee ballots in time to cure a missing or mismatched signature, along with Gwinnett County’s deficient absentee ballot design. A settlement was reached with the Georgia secretary of state that requires Georgia to provide uniform standards for notifying voters of any alleged signature defects on absentee ballot envelopes. A separate settlement was reached with Gwinnett County that led to the implementation of a new absentee ballot envelope design.
