Federal Court Rules Ballots Postmarked By Election Day Must Be Counted

Today, after a federal judge ruled that ballots postmarked by Election Day and received by 3 days after Election Day must be counted, Democratic Party of Georgia Chairwoman Nikema Williams released the following statement: 

“Today’s decision is a huge victory for Georgia voters, and a huge win in the fight for every vote to be counted. All Georgians deserve to have their voice heard, and in the midst of a global pandemic, it is the responsibility of our democracy to make voting by mail and early voting options as accessible as possible. Today’s win is a great first step, and Georgia Democrats will keep fighting to help every voter cast their ballot without issue. 

We continue to encourage all voters to cast their ballots as early as possible, whether that’s requesting an absentee ballot today, or early voting. Our voter protection hotline continues to be available for all voters with questions about casting their ballot at 888-730-5816.”
