Tuesday is the deadline for Georgia counties to certify election results to the Secretary of State, but the outcome of key races could depend on a new round of litigation. 

Although Republican Brian Kemp has declared victory in the governor’s race, Democrat Stacey Abrams hopes to net about 20,000 votes to force a runoff. 

A federal judge’s ruling late Monday could help her cause. The judge ordered the state to delay certifying the race until Friday afternoon and required officials to review thousands of provisional ballots

U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg on Monday ordered election officials to review as many as 27,000 provisional ballots that were cast because voters’ registration or identification couldn’t be verified at the polls. Totenberg’s ruling is separate from a decision Tuesday from another federal judge that additional absentee ballots should be counted.

The article goes on to state the following:

10:29 a.m.: A federal judge has ruled that additional absentee ballots should be counted in Gwinnett County, even if voters did not include their birth date on the forms. Kemp’s campaign estimates the ruling will affect about 400 ballots.

This ruling appears to give the power of a judge’s order to Secretary of State’s Robyn Crittenden’s instructions yesterday, which said ballots should be counted if the voters’ identity can be verified otherwise.

“All absentees rejected because of a date of birth issue must be counted!” Stacey Abrams’ campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo wrote on Twitter. “This was one of the issues in our litigation that we filed Sunday.”

    THESE ABSENT VOTING FORMS WITHOUT DATES MUST NOT BE COUNTED BECAUSE THE BIRTH YEAR LEFT OFF BECAUSE WITHOUT THAT THEY CAN’T BE VERIFIED AS CITIZENSHIP OF AMERICA THESE ARE ILLEGALS & REAUD BALLOTS DO NOT ALLOW THESE FRAUD VOTES TO BE COUNTED.

    Well, I’ll be! The Democrats have found a way to circumvent the law again. Just have the caravans fill out voter registrations, declare them “found ballots” and voila, they have as many ballots as needed to shift to anywhere a candidate is losing a race. Communism at its finest

    Someone has to stop this fraud being perpetrated by the demonrats. They do thos every time with the ballots. These liberal judges need to be voted out. They have a term of 6 yrs before election again. Find out in your area when the demon judges time is up and get them out of that position. Only way to have decent judges serving the people not a lowdown underhanded cheating lying dumokraut liberal!

    Since about the year of 1914 we have been neglecting official governments government officials and our process has worked fine and the last 12 years we have had corruption and nobody has done anything about it and here we are legal votes to be official on Tuesday a judge steps in and says no no no the amendment in the Constitution says otherwise why is it changed now. And why have these officials that have been proven to corrupt our vote have Not been arrested when it’s been proven that they’ve been messing with the voters votes?
