ATLANTA -- Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp says his office has launched an investigation into Fulton County's election procedures.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports state elections officials want to know whether the county's performance was poor enough to throw off some of the final results from the July 31 primary.
Kemp has expressed concerns about what he called "numerous and substantial issues" surrounding the administration of the election in the metro Atlanta county.
County authorities have said some delays were caused by the process of counting early ballots, or votes that were cast before election day.
