(From The Guardian)
A federal judge has ordered election officials in Georgia to stop throwing out absentee ballots solely because of a suspected signature mismatch. . . .
Judge Leigh Martin May [US District Court for the Northern District of Georgia] agreed with the plaintiffs, led by the American Civil Liberties Union, that rejecting absentee ballots without notifying voters or offering them a chance to resolve any discrepancy was a violation of their rights of equal protection and due process under the fourteenth amendment.
