Georgia Sec. of State recommends much more suspected election violations for regulation enforcement


(WALB) ATLANTA, Ga – The Georgia State Election Board sent another string of alleged electoral violations to prosecutors Wednesday after the Georgia Secretary of State Office said they had “answers to the most popular conspiracy theories from the makers of the new Georgian electoral system receive”. According to Brad Raffensperger, Secretary of State of Georgia.

“The allegations of widespread electoral fraud in November were completely unfounded, and it was good to hear the statement directly from the top officials in the electoral system,” said Raffensperger, who is also the chairman of the state election committee. “Georgians should be sure that their votes have been counted accurately by the new system. The cases of alleged election violations, which the board referred to the public prosecutor on Wednesday, also give the certainty that we will intercept them in the event of violations. “

Raffensperger said that as part of a “major improvement in voting security,” the state last year deployed new voting machines supplied by Dominion Voting Systems of Colorado after the company won a public tender.

Although the paper voting system increased voter protection, provided additional documentation and made the polling stations smaller, Raffensperger said that after the elections there were still “some unsubstantiated rumors about the machines”.

Raffensperger’s office invited Dominion executives to answer questions and refute the rumors.

“Dominion is proud to partner with the State of Georgia in successfully rolling out the new 2020 statewide voting system,” said John Poulos, CEO of Dominion. “We are grateful to the Georgian Foreign Minister’s office and the county’s electoral officials who helped not only maintain the resilience of the electoral process during the COVID-19 pandemic, but also after a widespread disinformation campaign aimed at sowing doubt , confusion persisted in the outcome of the presidential election. The historic statewide handcount of all ballots produced by Georgia voters confirmed the security and accuracy of the Dominion systems and added a number of pieces of evidence confirming the falseness of the lies told about our company. We appreciate the opportunity to highlight the launch of the new system in 2020 and share the facts about Dominion, and look forward to continuing to serve the Peach State. “

The board considered 75 cases during its third meeting of the month, and Raffensperger said dozen of them had been sent to the attorney general or local district attorneys for prosecution.

The press release said that on more than 300 cases in February, the board showed its intolerance of violations that affect the integrity of the elections.

Raffensperger pointed out that these include cases of campaigning within 150 feet of a polling station offering voters pizza and drinks, late election openings, and promotional payments for votes – including two Sign cart with a promise of $ 1,200 for voting Democratic.
