“More than 1,000 residents in metro Atlanta, Georgia, never received their requested absentee ballots, city officials say.

Cobb County Elections officials investigated and discovered that 1,046 requested absentee ballots were never mailed.

Elections and Registrations Director Janine Eveler attributed the situation to human error, with new staff not following procedures to ensure ballots were mailed.

‘I am very disappointed that we have placed these voters in a position where they may not have an opportunity to cast their ballots in this general election,’ Cobb County’s Board of Elections Chair Tori Silas said in a press release.”
