Kemp’s office made no comment other than confirming his request to vote in absentia.
Kemp is a Republican who served as the top election official in Georgia for eight years as the secretary of state. He supported President Donald Trump and appointed U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler (Kelly Loeffler), who is currently running for 21 candidates to retain her seat.
Although state law allows registered voters to request absentee ballots before Friday, election officials cannot ensure that they will arrive in time.
Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs said: “The post office cannot guarantee delivery in such a short time.”
; “Since May, our office has asked the public to vote in absentia. The state has three weeks of early voting rights. It provides voters with ample opportunities to vote in various ways.”
If Kemp’s absentee ballot arrives on Tuesday, he can return it to one of the six coin boxes available in his hometown of Athens.
In the 2018 election, Kemp voted in person on election day in Athens Clark County. He defeated Democrat Stacey Abrams (Stacey Abrams) and became governor of Georgia.
