Once the revised vote counts are submitted to the state, Crittenden can certify the election results. A different federal judge previously prevented her from certifying the election before 5 p.m. Friday.
Crittenden previously instructed counties to count ballots with incorrect birthdate information. Fulton, Cobb, Henry and DeKalb counties reported that their vote counts already include absentee ballots with birthdate discrepancies.
In Gwinnett, which had the most rejected absentee ballots in the state, election workers were tabulating almost 500 ballots, including 364 that had been rejected for year of birth issues.
