GA Seeks Dismissal Of Suit Over Overseas Ballots
" ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) -┬áThe state of Georgia has asked a federal judge to dismiss a federal government lawsuit that claimed the state’s schedule for runoff elections violates federal law on military and overseas absentee ballots.

Federal prosecutors had argued that Georgia’s procedures were “inadequate to ensure that its eligible military and overseas voters can participate fully” in a runoff election.

A federal judge last month ordered the state to extend the deadline to accept absentee ballots from military service members, their families and citizens living overseas for the primary runoff.

Georgia’s response filed Monday says the issues raised in the federal government’s complaint have been resolved by that order. The state also says no runoff is expected in the November general election, so the issue will not arise then. "
