Statement Regarding Long Lines at Early Voting Locations

Statement Regarding Long Lines at Early Voting Locations

Georgians are voting in record numbers this election cycle - both via absentee ballots and early in-person voting. The League of Women Voters of Georgia (LWVGA) applauds Georgians who have already cast their ballots, especially those who have been willing to spend up to 10 hours in lines in order to cast their votes. It is unacceptable that voters throughout Georgia have been unable to quickly vote at early voting centers. 
 
LWVGA calls on the Secretary of State and county elections officials to work together to reassess the needs of polling locations based on turn out during the first two days of early voting and to reallocate resources to ensure that polling locations are equipped with adequate numbers of poll pads, touch screens, poll workers, and technicians so that voters during the remainder of this election cycle are not forced to spend hours in line in order to vote.
 
For Georgians who have yet to vote, LWVGA encourages you to check vote411.org for information on voting options in Georgia and the candidates that will be on your ballot and to make a plan to vote on or before Nov. 3.
