A recent mailer sent by the Democratic Party of Georgia to about 2,500 voters in Georgia's 6th Congressional District mistakenly directed them to the wrong polling location, an error the party says it is trying to fix ahead of Tuesday's runoff election.
A party spokesman said Friday the vendor who created the mailer got precincts wrong in its printing, directing voters in Cobb County who received the mailer to go vote at a location that’s actually in Fulton County. The voters who received the erroneous mailer have a Roswell mailing address but live in East Cobb, near the Fulton County line.
