A new ruling from Cobb county Superior court has extended the deadline for the Cobb elections department to receive and process absentee Ballots for voters who had requested ballots before the deadline but had not yet received them. A Cobb county superior court judge has granted a preliminary injunction extending the deadline for receiving delayed absentee ballots for certain voters, along with other accommodations, in response to a lawsuit filed by the Southern Poverty Law Center, The ACLU of Georgia, and Dechert LLP.
Voters whose absentee ballot applications were received by the elections office on or before Nov. 26th will now have their ballot counted if it is postmarked by 7 P.M. on election day and received no later than December 9. Voters can check their myvoter page to confirm the application receipt date. These voters may also use a federal write-in absentee ballot to cast their votes if they have not received their official absentee ballot by December 4th.
