Both Democrats and Republicans are trying to find every person whose votes couldn’t be counted in Georgia, where the presidential contest could come down to a few hundred votes out of 5 million cast. Some absentee ballots were missing signatures. Some people did not have an ID at the polls.

Some need to prove they’re properly registered as voters. All must correct their ballots by 5 p.m. Friday. Thanks to a lawsuit, counties now have to contact voters so ballots can be fixed. The parties also have these lists and are reaching out. The Associated Press went along with door-knockers in suburban Atlanta’s Gwinnett County.
