STACEY’S CELEBRATION: Abrams’ Campaign Calls Judge’s Ballot Ruling a ‘MAJOR VICTORY’

Originally published at:

Democratic candidate for Georgia’s gubernatorial race Stacey Abrams praised a Georgia judge’s decision Thursday that would allow the state to count absentee ballots on which voter’s personal information is incomplete or missing.

According to the Hill, Judge Steve Jones ordered Georgia’s Secretary of State to not certify the election results until the absentee ballots were counted.

“This is a major victory for Georgia voters and the Abrams campaign in the fight to ensure every eligible vote is counted and every voice is heard,” said Abrams’ campaign manager.

Abrams currently trails Republican Brian Kemp by a thin 50.3% to 48.8% margin. The Democrat needs to slim down the GOP lead in order to force an official recount throughout the state.
