Georgia judge dismisses Trump campaign case in Chatham ballot dispute

Source: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The Trump campaign and the Georgia GOPís challenge to vote counting in Chatham County was rejected on Thursday by a Chatham County Superior Court judge.

The campaign had filed a petition that raised questions about whether Chatham County election officials were following Georgia law to ensure no late-arriving absentee ballots were counted. State law requires any ballot that arrives after 7 p.m. on Election Day to be invalidated.

A pair of Republican election watchers who had raised concerns on Wednesday about the process testified in the video-conferenced hearing. They both testified about concerns about the process they observed involving a stack of 53 ballots, but offered no evidence that the ballots had come in after the deadline.

After listening to testimony for more than a hour, including a details outlining the procedures the Chatham County registrarís office uses to receive and track absentee ballots, Judge James F. Bass swiftly threw out the case.

Chatham County (Savannah) Superior Court Judge dismisses Georgia GOP challenge

Lawsuit dismissed! Absentee ballots can be counted in Savannah!!

Original report: Georgia GOP, Trump file lawsuit over ballot counting
The Georgia Republican Party and President Donald Trumpís campaign filed a lawsuit Wednesday alleging that Chatham County is improperly counting absentee ballots received after the stateís deadline.

The petition, filed in Chatham County Superior Court, was the third filed by the Trump campaign, all in states with close races where ballots were still being counted late Wednesday.

In Georgia, Trump held a small lead over Democratic candidate Joe Biden as tens of thousands of absentee ballots remained to be counted in metro Atlanta and Savannah.

The Georgia suit addresses how absentee ballots were stored and states that ballots received after 7 p.m. Tuesday should not be counted. A poll watcher claims he saw a poll worker handling ballots incorrectly.
