All Fulton County employees downtown were told to leave their offices because of unrest, and same went for the elections warehouse even though it is near Blandtown.
Monisha Brown, spokeswoman for the newly elected Sheriff Patrick Labat, said the agency has a building next to the elections warehouse. She said deputies are using the general location as a staging area should they need to respond to agitators.
Corbitt said she did not have a date or time of when the adjudication process would resume. This process is required for Fulton to submit its final ballots, which total less than 10,000.
Fulton County finished counting nearly all of its ballots on Tuesday but resumed at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday with 7,500 absentee ballots to process.
The county had planned to adjudicate ballots at 3 p.m. Mail-in ballots take more time to count because they are more complicated to tabulate. There are a variety of reasons, including an adjudication process that allows ballots with stray markings or other irregularities to be reviewed by poll watchers from each party.
Fulton elections head Richard Barron said Wednesday morning that the number of provisional ballots was unknown. Provisional ballots have until 5 p.m. Friday to be cured, which is also the deadline to accept overseas/military ballots.
