Volunteers track down Georgia voters by phone and on foot
ATLANTA — Volunteers spread out Friday trying to find any ballots that could help Democrat Stacey Abrams close the gap against Republican Brian Kempin their unsettled, too-close-to-call race for Georgia governor.
Unofficial returns show Kemp with an advantage, and he’s already resigned as secretary of state to start a transition with the blessing of departing GOP Gov. Nathan Deal. President Donald Trump weighed in with a tweet that said Kemp “ran a great race ... he won. It is time to move on!”
Yet Abrams sent out volunteers and campaign staff in search of votes that she hopes could still tilt the margin toward her.
Dozens of volunteers called voters who used a provisional ballot to make sure they take steps to ensure their vote — for Abrams or Kemp — is counted by Friday evening, the deadline.
