ATLANTA  —  
Fulton County is the only county in Georgia that doesn’t have all its precincts completely reported from election night. Secretary of State Brian Kemp says his office has begun several investigations into what happened.  Kemp says the biggest problem is that a number of voters who thought they had registered did not show up on Fulton County’s rolls. (photo by Ellen Reinhardt)

Fulton County is the only county in Georgia that doesn’t have all its precincts completely reported from election night. Secretary of State Brian Kemp says his office has begun several investigations into what happened.

Kemp says the biggest problem is that a number of voters who thought they had registered did not show up on Fulton County’s rolls. So poll workers had them cast a provisional ballot. Some precincts had so many provisional voters that they ran out of those ballots, causing long waits.

Kemp says they are looking into the historic number of provisional ballots issued in Fulton County. He says Fulton is the only one of Georgia’s 159 counties that was unable to complete its election returns.
