Nearly 1 in 10 Mail Ballots Thrown Out in Georgia County

Election officials in Gwinnett County, Georgia, have thrown out almost one in 10 of the vote-by-mail ballots cast. Officials cannot explain why, though they deny it was done out of malice. Citizens whose votes have been rejected can resubmit their ballots or vote in person, but advocates say that this puts an undue burden on voters.
