Attention District 4 Voters - The Deadline to Cure Your Provisional Ballots and Absentee Ballots is Friday, August 14, 2020,
Thank you to the District 4 voters who participated in the August 11, Runoff Election that was held yesterday. I have been informed by the Cobb County Board of Elections that it has hundreds of votes to count before the election for Cobb County Commissioner for District 4 can be certified.

These uncounted votes fall into two categories, Deficient Provisional Ballots and Absentee Ballots that need signature (i.e. signature needs to be verified) or information cures (i.e. information needs to be provided or verified). I am told that action is required by the voter for these votes to be counted.

The Cobb Board of Elections informed me that it has sent letters to all voters that fall into these categories. If you have received this letter from the Board of Elections, please respond immediately to their office by close of business on Friday, August 14, 2020. If you have questions or concerns about this process or how your vote was handled on Tuesday, please contact Attorney Terry Cummings, who can assist you with getting the matter cured and your vote counted at: terrycummings360@gmail.com

The position of my campaign is that the election process is not over until every vote is counted, which was reinforced by the Georgia Secretary of State's Office in their memo on Post-Election Instructions Re: Absentee and Provisional Ballots

sos.ga.gov/admin/uploads/OEB_-_11-12-18_Post_Election_Absentee_and_Provisional_Ballots.pdf

Our campaign is relying on the Cobb Board of Elections and the Georgia Secretary of State's Office to ensure that this process is followed based on this information and that all votes in this runoff election are counted.

My advocacy on ensuring that every vote is counted embraces Stacey Abrams' commitment to ensuring every vote is counted through Fair Fight, a 20-state, multimillion dollar campaign to promote free and fair elections.​
