Perdue Campaign Calls for Action to Protect Integrity of Georgia Run-Off Elections
Atlanta, GA – In response to calls for Democrats to move to Georgia ahead of the December 7th voter registration deadline, the Perdue for Senate campaign and Georgia Republicans are requesting that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger take additional measures to protect the integrity of the January 5th Senate run-off elections.
“Every legally eligible Georgia voter deserves to have their voice heard in this runoff election,” said Perdue for Senate Campaign Manager Ben Fry. “Like Chairman Shafer, we have serious concerns about Democrat efforts to encourage non-Georgians to temporarily move to our state, only to vote in the two most critical Senate elections in modern history and go home. Steps must be taken to ensure our election system is secure.”
“We now request that you utilize your broad powers to ensure that Georgia voters receive a fair election in January,” wrote Georgia Republican Party Chairman David Shafer in a letter. “The Georgia legislature never intended for non-Georgians to dilute the voices of Georgians in our elections. Quite to the contrary, our laws are written to ensure that our United States Senators and all of our elected officials are chosen by Georgians. We look forward to working with your office to protect the integrity of Georgia’s elections.”
