Kemp’s office did not comment on anything other than confirming his request for an absentee ballot.
Kemp, a Republican, previously served as Georgia’s top election official for eight years as secretary of state. He supports President Donald Trump and appoints US Senator Kelly Loeffler, who is currently running in a group of 21 candidates to retain his seat.
Although state law allows registered voters to request an absentee ballot through Friday, election officials cannot guarantee that they will arrive on time.
“The Post Office cannot guarantee deliveries within this short time period,”
; Deputy Foreign Minister Jordan Fuchs said. “Our office has been open to the public since May to request an absentee ballot. The state has three weeks of early voting, providing voters with many opportunities to vote in a variety of ways. “
If Kemp’s absentee ballot arrives on Tuesday, he can return it to one of six available voting boxes in his home district in Athens.
During the 2018 elections, Kemp directly voted on Election Day in Athens-Clarke County. He defeated Democrat Stacey Abrams to become governor of Georgia.
