“Ga. Election Officials Ask Judge To Suspend Absentee Ballot Order Over Signature Mismatches”


The Secretary of State’s office filed an emergency motion Thursday evening saying it wants U.S. District Court Judge Leigh Martin May to suspend the order while it appeals to a higher court, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

May initially ordered absentee ballots with signatures that don’t match what’s on file to be accepted as provisional ballots and to give voters a chance to resolve signature issues.

On Friday morning, May ordered that plaintiffs must file a response to the emergency motion by noon Monday.
