The elections board in a Georgia county has rejected attempts to disqualify tens of thousands of voters before two U.S. Senate runoffs.

The Cobb County Board of Elections & Registration voted during a short livestreamed meeting Friday to deny a full hearing to two challenges, news outlets report.

Both challenges say the board should strike names appearing on both the voter rolls and on a national database of people who have moved.

Board attorney Gregg Litchfield told members, for one thing, people on the national registry might just happen to have the same name as a Cobb County resident, The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.

It said similar challenges are being filed across the state ahead of Georgia's hotly contested Senate runoffs Jan. 5.
