Earlier this week, Democrat Deborah Gonzalez was elected the new District Attorney of the Western Judicial Circuit after winning the runoff election against her opponent James Chafin. Once again, we caught up with her to reflect on her campaign and discuss her plans as District Attorney.
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.
