The State of Georgia is planning to spend over $100 million to replace the current electronic voting machines with Dominion Voting System’s Image Cast X electronic ballot marking device (BMD) which accumulates votes that are embedded in bar codes the voter cannot verify. This new system also has a variety of security, auditability and legal issues and was recently rejected for use by the state of Texas.
Georgia law provides that ten or more voters may demand a reexamination of a voting system for the Secretary of State to determine whether it is secure and meets the Election Code (§21-2-379.24). Concerned voters are petitioning Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Georgia election officials to reexamine the proposed system. The Constitution Party of Georgia (CP-GA) has joined other organizations in demanding a diligent, responsible and honest re-examination as to whether the Image Cast X voting system meets the legal requirements according to state law.Read more

Voters seek to sideline voting system, alleging indeterminable results
Atlanta (July 4, 2017)—Coalition for Good Governance and six Georgia voters filed a lawsuit yesterday, alleging that numerous failures of the voting system resulted in an indeterminable outcome in the June 20 Special Election for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District. The lawsuit (Curling v. Kemp et al.), seeks to set aside the results of the Special Election because demonstrated voting system failures cause the reported results to be in considerable doubt. The lawsuit names Secretary of State Brian Kemp, the State Election Board, all county election officials conducting the Special Election, Kennesaw State University’s Center for Election Systems, and its director, Merle King, as defendants. The plaintiffs requested a jury trial in the case.Read more
