The largest counts of provisional ballots, not surprisingly, are in metro Atlanta: about 7,600 voters among five core counties. Numbers for other metro areas in Georgia were much smaller. Athens-Clarke County, for example, had about 100.
All told, however, the counts fell significantly below warnings of tens of thousands of voters the groups said could appear on Election Day. The alert came as some groups sued the state alleging more than 40,000 eligible voters were missing from the rolls despite making an effort to register this year.
