Trump campaign files lawsuit to secure ballots in Georgia

Trump’s re-election campaign and the Georgia Republican Party have filed a lawsuit in Georgia seeking to force Chatham County to secure and account for ballots received after 7pm ET (midnight or 00:00 GMT) on Election Day.

The lawsuit brought against the Chatham County Board of Elections claims that Republican challengers had inadequate access to ballots received after 7pm on November 3, reports Al Jazeera.

The lawsuit further claims a “significant degree of confusion may still exist regarding whether ballots received after 7:00 P.M. can be legally counted in Georgia – and they cannot.”

Chatham County is home to Savannah, Georgia. Biden won the county with 57.7 percent to Trump’s 41 percent, according to Fox News.

Georgia, which is one of a handful of states not yet called by the AP, is the third state in which the Trump campaign has filed a lawsuit related to counting ballots in the tight presidential election.
