Summary The Atlanta Constitution looks at the existing and the potential scope of voting errors and fraud in Georgia. The investigation finds that "the actual number of ballots cast by the dead is fairly small - 5,412 in the past 20 years," but "the ranks of potential dead voters have grown dramatically in recent years." The story analyses the most common errors in voting records and the loopholes in some election laws. The report also describes the voter identification requirements.
