State election officials have blamed inexperienced election workers for the problems as well as safety issues related to the coronavirus, including the heightened use of absentee ballots, and have pushed back on suggestions that malfunctioning equipment is causing delays.

“The reality of what you’re seeing in Georgia today is a function of the Covid situation in large part,” said Gabriel Sterling, the state’s voting implementation manager, in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “Cuomo Prime Time.”

“We did lose many polling places because it’s summertime so schools are closed, churches opted out, VFW halls opted out. And Fulton County specifically — they lost 40 locations and collapsed many of those locations into mega-precincts, which saw a lot of these amazingly long lines. We said this is not a good idea. You need to find other alternative locations — and those kind of polling closures and things you’re discussing are literally county decisions.”

However, several voters with whom CNN has spoken have said they were having difficulty using election machines.
