Sorry, Fran. There will be Sunday voting in DeKalb (but Tucker Rec is out)

UPDATE: Download the complete early voting schedule from the DeKalb Board of Elections website. Despite public protest over the proposed shuttering of Tucker Recreation Center as an early voting site, the DeKalb Board of Elections voted today to approve staff’s early voting plan, which included a break away from using the center. So, no advance early voting starting April 30 in Tucker, although Tucker Library will open for voting May 14-18.

Reps. Scott Holcomb, Scot Turner: We need to upgrade vote machines

By Jonathan Grant @Brambleman Georgians should rally behind Reps. Scott Holcomb (D-Atlanta) and Scot Turner (R-Holly Springs) and their request for funding to upgrade the state’s voting systems. Read their letter to Governor Deal They state it will cost $21,000,000. I’d say that vote security in the age of Russian Influence would be a bargain at any price. What could possibly stand in their way? Oh yeah. Brian Kemp. Georgia’s Secretary of State thinks everything’s hunky-dory, except for the constant attacks by liberals on the sanctity of the vote. How did he not get Pants on Fire for that one? Well, I’m giving him one. A Secretary of State shouldn’t go around saying bombastic things about voters all the time, but that’s what…

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp: Threat or Menace?

As for now, let’s just ask ourselves a question. Do we want this man to oversee an election that could catapult him into the governor’s mansion?  Many people are saying NO. Kemp’s hyperpartisanship and incompetence have led Atlanta resident John Ziegler to launch a petition drive to recall Kemp from office. There are many rules for the recall process, and Ziegler admits that it’s an uphill effort, since a recall requires 778,677 signatures (15 percent of Georgia’s eligible voters), with more than 50,000 from each of Georgia’s fourteen Congressional districts. If his group, A Voice for All Georgians, is able to collect that many signatures by December 15, then they will be submitted to … the Secretary of State. Expect bureaucratic foot-dragging,…

No Problem: Tucker Rec Center CAN be used for Early Voting in #GA06

Update on Early Voting in DeKalb Tucker Rec Center IS Available as #GA06 Early Voting Site   Backround: DeKalb County is considering adding Early Voting sites for the Sixth District runoff. Citizens have called for Tucker Rec Center to be added, along with Chamblee Civic Center.  Current policy only allows one early voting site, at Memorial Drive, several miles outside the district.  While it may not be the intent, the effect was voter suppression. Using Tucker would open up Early Voting to tens of thousands of people in the Southeast section of the Sixth. The Board is waiting until its May 11 meeting to to decide. Early voting starts May 30. No guarantees. There was a signal from the board that a…
