A county judge in Georgia ordered three precincts to stay open late after machines malfunctioned. Also, when cybersecurity expert Logan Lamb showed how the system's servers could be exploited to reveal the passwords, voter rolls, and voting machine software, the Coalition for Good Governance wanted the Federal Bureau of Investigation to examine the servers. He walked by reporters and said: "Take Two". A survey previous year by the security firm Carbon Black reported that one in four people said they would skip future elections based on worries their votes could be compromised. She says she will reverse an income tax cut to help fund the expansion. "I don't think the people of Georgia like that", Trump said at an event in Macon on Sunday. She's already made history as the first black woman to be a major party gubernatorial nominee.

First and foremost, the results in Georgia will be a fast and clear grade of the Trump presidency - period. It's not exactly Peoria, but Georgia is increasingly representative of the racial, gender, political and business dynamics driving the country itself.

According to AP interviews and records released by the Georgia Democratic Party, the lawyer for the election-security advocates, David Cross, notified both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Kemp's counsel Saturday morning that a citizen had alerted him to the flaw.

Republican Brian Kemp on Monday stood by his decision to level claims of attempted hacking at Democrats, turning their objections - and the concerns of nonpartisan civil rights groups - into an election eve selling point.

Capehart also attacked a racist robocall from a white nationalist group, although Kemp vigorously denounced the call as "vile", "racist" and "absolutely disgusting". Kemp returned the card to a poll worker, received a working card and was able to cast his vote, WXIA-TV news reports. Although every tactic in the book has been used to suppress votes, Georgia still came through with record numbers for early voting-2 million early ballots were cast in 2018, compared to 900,000 early ballots in 2014. If no candidate reaches that benchmark, a runoff will take place on December 4.

Even if Kemp's accusation against the Georgia Democratic Party proves false, Levin said voters - in Georgia and elsewhere - should still be vigilant for signs of potential cyberattacks on Election Day.

Some 35 Senate seats were in play, as were nearly 40 governorships and the balance of power in virtually every state legislature. With control of Congress and statehouses across the nation at stake, numerous nation's top elections were too close to call.

Kemp's office did not detail any Democratic acts, offering no evidence for Sunday's unusual action that effectively means the state's chief elections officer began a probe of his partisan opposition days before an election. She wants citizens to vote for her because her campaign is simply "better".

Voters around the U.S. fought long lines, broken machines, power outages and even a surprise foreclosure to cast their ballots, with election watchers reporting a surge in turnout anyway.

"While we cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can confirm that the Democratic Party of Georgia is under investigation for possible cyber crimes", said Candice Broce, the office's press secretary.

On policy, the principal dividing lines are health care (Abrams wants to expand Medicaid insurance; Kemp wants to maintain Georgia's refusal and boost rural hospitals other way); education (Kemp supports private school vouchers; Abrams opposes them); and criminal justice (Kemp is a law-and-order Republican; Abrams focuses rehabilitating non-violent offenders and criticizes cash bail as unfair to poorer defendants).

The Georgia outcome is among the most closely watched of any midterm contest for reasons beyond Abrams' race and gender.
