Electoral Officer in Georgia: Absentee voting is not "automatic" in the second round of the Senate

Georgia's preparations for the second round of the January 5 elections to fill two US Senate seats include the absentee vote, but the president of the Macon-Bibb County Council said that the distribution of these ballots would not be "automatic" and would require additional steps.

“Just because you got an absentee ballot in the last election does not mean you’ll get an automatic ballot in this election unless you’re one of our 13 or so thousand elderly or disabled that are on our list,” Mike Kaplan said in a recent meeting. “Everyone else, even if you voted by absentee in the Nov. 3 election, has to request an absentee ballot. I want to make that very clear.”
