As Georgians begin to head to the polls today, their Secretary of State has failed to answer basic questions about the transparency of the January 5th election. The Secretary of State should answer:
- How many new total new voters have registered to vote between November 4 and December 7?
- Can you ensure that all 159 counties have submitted complete lists of new registrants eligible to vote in the runoff and that number is not subject to change?
- If not, can you confirm by a certain date when each of the 159 counties will have submitted all of their new registrants eligible to vote in the runoff?
- What safeguards have you put in place to ensure that only eligible new registrants are casting ballots for the runoffs now that early voting has begun?
- What is your process to ensure that both Republicans and Democrats are receiving the same information on the same timeline on new registrants from your office?
- How many new registrants have already requested or returned their absentee ballot?
- Have you notified voters who have been purged from the permanent absentee list that they will no longer be receiving an absentee ballot?
This morning, Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler called on the Georgia Secretary of State to release a final list of newly registered voters following his failure to do so ahead of the start of early voting. He has failed to do so.
