SHOCK: Poll Extensions in Georgia Democratic County Will Likely Boost Abrams

Published

on

Polling stations in Fulton County, Georgia, a largely Democratic county which encompasses Atlanta and Decatur will keep polls open until 9PM and 10PM ET, undoubtably helping Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the county decided that it “made a mistake” by not employing enough voting machines, and has decided to keep the polls open later.

Abrams Tweeted:

FULTON COUNTY POLL EXTENSIONS. GO VOTE NOW!

Pittman Park Rec Center NOW OPEN UNTIL 9 PM (Forbes Arena)

Morehouse College NOW OPEN UNTIL 10 PM

Booker T Washington High School NOW OPEN UNTIL 10 PM

“The precinct had a rocky start to the day. It opened with only three machines, which the elections board admitted was a mistake. The long lines that quickly formed soon prompted a visit from the Rev. Jesse Jackson, who didn’t want anyone to get discouraged and leave. Five more machines were brought in,” the paper said.

“Fulton County Elections Director Rick Barron said the mistake was a result of the wrong voter registration number being entered into the assignment; there should be one machine for every 350 registered voters in that precinct,” according to the report.
