Our target was 1.5 million absentee voters. We received 1.6 million requests and at the moment we probably have roughly 1.5 million ballot papers accepted, so that was a win for us. Also, our target was 2 million voters to vote early,” he added. We passed by 2.7 or 2.8. That was a success. And after that day, for Election Day, the ability to handle up to 2 million additional voters, and we’ll see what the total is by the end of the day. ”

Ravensburger said Georgia doesn’t have any malware or cybersecurity issues in the state yet, they did not hear of any legal objections to any absentee mail polls until this afternoon.
