Fulton sorts though ballots, certifies election

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Fulton County has sorted through about 11,000 provisional ballots and certified the results of Tuesday's election.
 
Members of the Board of Registrations and Elections voted during a meeting Saturday to officially approve the results. The board chair declined to comment after the meeting.
 
The votes contained on those provisional ballots did not change the outcome of any races. That includes a Republican victory in a state Senate district that could result in a GOP supermajority in the General Assembly.
 
Secretary of State Brian Kemp has opened investigations into voting problems in the county, including complaints that registered voters were improperly forced to cast provisional ballots.

The final vote count for the November 2012 election can be found on the county website at fultoncountyga.gov.
