Election Integrity Georgia

Election Integrity for America

Democracy in Georgia

Below, a few points are highlighted that have been raised regarding election integrity vulnerabilities in Georgia.

  1. Absentee Ballots: Concerns have been raised about the security and verification process of absentee ballots. Some argue that the absence of strict ID requirements for absentee voting may increase the risk of fraud.

  2. Election Infrastructure: Questions have been raised about the security of Georgia's election infrastructure. Issues related to the use of electronic voting machines, such as the potential for hacking or tampering, have been highlighted by some experts and stakeholders. 3. Voter Roll Accuracy: There have been claims about inaccuracies in the voter rolls in Georgia, including concerns about people who have moved or died remaining on the rolls, potentially allowing for fraudulent voting. 4. Ballot Harvesting: There are concerns about "ballot harvesting," where third parties collect and submit absentee ballots on behalf of voters, potentially allowing for manipulation or coercion. 5. Voter ID Laws: Some argue that Georgia has implemented strict voter ID laws to secure elections. However, others believe such laws disproportionately impact minority and lower-income voters, reducing their ability to vote and potentially affecting the election outcomes. 6. Public Confidence: The debate and conflicting claims around the integrity of the election process can lead to a loss of public confidence in the system, making people less likely to participate in elections and more likely to question the legitimacy of the outcomes. 7. Legislative Changes: Changes in election-related laws and regulations can impact election integrity. For example, Georgia's new election law, passed in 2021, brought several changes in election administration, voting process, and voter access, sparking controversy and debates about its impact on election integrity and voter access. 8. Lack of Transparency: Some critics have argued that there is a lack of transparency in the election process, making it difficult for observers and the public to ascertain the fairness and accuracy of the election. 9. Chain of Custody: There have been concerns about the chain of custody of the ballots, from collection to counting, with claims that any lapses could allow for tampering or miscounting.

Verifying Information

It is essential to refer to credible and updated sources to assess these concerns' validity and consider the assessments of non-partisan experts and election officials.

Legal and Legislative Context

Laws and procedures are in place to ensure the integrity of the election process. Changes in the legal framework, such as the law passed in 2021, can address perceived vulnerabilities but may also introduce new concerns and debates about voter access and election fairness.

Engaging with the legal and legislative context is crucial for a nuanced understanding of election integrity in any region.
