4. Calling on legal experts to weigh in -- what are the legal ramifications for having missing ballots?

What happens to the election in this case, especially if the ballots are not recovered prior to Nov. 6th?

What can be done to allow voters whose ballots have gone missing to cast their votes?

9. this is about peops requesting ballots and not recieving them

from the nyt,

Fears of voter suppression were again ignited in Georgia on Thursday after state Democratic officials said that more than 4,700 vote-by-mail applications were missing in DeKalb County, one of Georgia’s most populous and liberal-leaning regions.

County officials acknowledged the missing applications in a phone conversation this week with Democratic voter protection officials, and pledged to call the thousands of voters to inform them of the error, according to multiple people familiar with the conversation.

A spokesman for the DeKalb County elections board would not confirm the details of the call. Sam Tillman, the chairman of the board, added that “there is no evidence that there are any missing or lost absentee ballot request forms.” He said of a list of 4,700 names provided by the Democratic officials, he could confirm that the county had only received 48 of the requests.

5. They are supposedly missing 4,500 absentee ballot applications, not the ballots themselves.

6. Typical

Republicans have been caught before throwing absentee and particularly provisional ballots in the trash.

7. Not Surprising in the Least. Georgia Elections Are Shady as Hell.

Truth be told: Obama should have carried the state at least once. Same for Hillary in '16. The same thing kept happening: votes kept being mysteriously lost or thrown out.

And it almost always slips under the radar.

How long has that weasel Kemp been Secretary of State again...?

10. The subject line is false. It is absentee ballot request forms, not ballots.
