Campaign Legal Center (CLC) and a coalition of voting rights advocacy groups are urging Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to institute a series of key voting rights reforms to make voting safer and more secure.
With a pivotal Senate runoff election in Georgia scheduled for Jan. 5, 2021, and with COVID-19 cases surging throughout much of the country, the Secretary of State must move swiftly to institute these nonpartisan and commonsense steps.
In a letter sent to the Secretary of State on Nov. 30, 2020, CLC and partners outlined the plan of action that Georgia needs to take to help voters cast a ballot that counts without needless obstacles. The reforms include:
- Expansion of early voting sites and hours.
- Resolution of voting technology problems.
- Publication of updated ballot status information.
- Addition of ballot drop boxes.
Instituting these reforms would help ensure that all voters can safely and securely exercise their right to vote.
