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.
ProPublica’s Electionland project covers problems that prevent eligible voters from casting their ballots during the 2020 elections. Our coalition of newsrooms around the country are investigating issues related to voter registration, pandemic-related changes to voting, the shift to vote-by-mail, cybersecurity, voter education, misinformation, and more.
