“Emergency rule allows Ga. absentee ballots to be opened early”

This is a change I have advocating for all states for the fall election. Of particular importance in Michigan and North Carolina, which I believe still have not made this change. From the story:

The board voted unanimously to pass the emergency rule, which will help election officials handle record numbers of absentee ballots. In previous elections, absentee ballots couldn’t be processed until election day. . . .

“For this once-in-a-lifetime unprecedented emergency, this regulation painstakingly attempts to balance transparency and security,” State Election Board member Matt Mashburn said during the meeting held via teleconference.
