In 2019, an order by a federal judge required the state of Georgia to scrap its aging electronic, paperless voting system that had been in use for the previous 17 years. In 2020, the state introduced new touchscreen voting machines that print paper ballots for tallying and greater security.
The new system was criticized after various technical challenges caused long lines for some voters in the June primary. There were reports some delays on the first day of the state's early voting period. By Election Day itself, there were reports of delays in a few counties but no widespread delays or long lines.
