Georgia Democrat searching for votes days after election

ATLANTA (AP) — Volunteers have been trying to find ballots that could help Democrat Stacey Abrams close the gap against Republican Brian Kemp in Georgia’s unresolved race for governor.

Kemp leads in unofficial returns, and he already has resigned as secretary of state to start a transition.

But Kemp supporters and others worked feverishly to locate uncounted provisional ballots before Friday evening’s deadline.

It’s not clear whether the effort paid off. But a majority-black county with more than 750,000 residents in metro Atlanta, DeKalb, said it would remain open past normal hours for provisional voters.
