BOE Extends Emergency Rules for Absentee Voting

News 9

This morning, the Georgia State Election Board extended two emergency rules concerning absentee voting.

The first rule extends the use of 24/7 monitored drop boxes, a rule that was most recently approved over the summer, but due to expire in late December.

The second rule continues to allow counties to begin processing ballots up to two weeks before Election Day, but now requires counties to begin processing absentee ballots starting at least the week before Election Day.

Both rules will be enforced through the end of the Jan. 5 runoff.
