Georgia Voters Call on SOS Kemp to Halt Use of Machines Ahead of June 20th Special Election, Use Paper Ballots Instead
Atlanta, GA - With unprecedented national attention on the June 20th Special Election in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, voting security experts are sounding the alarm that the state’s voting machines are painfully out of date and prone to error, and must be replaced with paper ballots to ensure accurate results in next month’s congressional election. A group of concerned Georgia citizens is calling on Secretary of State Brian Kemp to do just that. The experts note that not only are the machines unsafe and unreliable, there is no way to verify that the results reflect voters’ choices. The system has no paper audit trail to reference in the event of machine failure or malicious software manipulation.
