More than two-thirds of the 37,000 voter-registration challenges submitted by Donald Trump supporters in metro Atlanta’s Gwinnett County have been rejected or withdrawn, according to county spokeswoman Deborah Tuff.

The challenges, deposited at the county elections office in eight boxes on Aug. 29, were assembled by a group backed by former US National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and Patrick Byrne, former chief executive officer of Overstock.com. The pair have been pushing the former president’s unfounded claims that the 2020 election was stolen.
