Several states held primary elections yesterday, and there were so many voting issues in Georgia that state officials are now calling for investigations. Voters waited in line for hours, and some precincts extended voting into the night. Election officials chalked the delays up to technical issues and a shortage of poll workers due to the pandemic. The state election board is already investigating the handling of absentee ballots in Atlanta’s Fulton County. Some voters worried that the problems might be an ominous preview of what could happen in November’s general election. Meanwhile, groups across the country are reporting growing voter registration numbers amid recent surges of activism. Other voter-oriented groups are seeing a rise in volunteer support and donations.
