If elected, Abrams would be the first non-white, non-male governor of Georgia and the first female African American governor in U.S. history.
Kemp's office said in a statement on Sunday it launched the investigation late on Saturday and that it had notified the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the FBI. The system, he said, "clearly has never been audited by any computer security professional".
Voters in one of the nation's most closely watched governor's races cast ballots Tuesday amid an ongoing dispute about one of the candidates' management of Georgia's elections system, leaving open the possibility that supporters on the losing side may not accept the outcome.

Oprah Winfrey and Georgia Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams greet the audience during a town hall style event at the Cobb Civic Center on November 1, 2018 in Marietta, Georgia. I just want to say, Jesus don't like ugly", Oprah said in an Instagram video captioned, "The antidote to Hate.
Republican Brian Kemp on Monday stood by his decision to level claims of attempted hacking at Democrats, turning their objections - and the concerns of nonpartisan civil rights groups - into an election eve selling point.
Here's the thing, though: although experts seem to agree that, yes, the vulnerabilities are very much real, no one, including Kemp, has offered any evidence that the Democratic Party tried to abuse that problem.
