“Georgia Republicans take first step to Fulton elections takeover”

Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. The article notes that Fulton County is “home to a tenth of all Georgians.” Under Georgia’s new law, “the State Election Board can replace a county’s election board following a performance review/audit/investigation. Then, a temporary superintendent would enjoy full managerial authority of how the county counts votes and staffs polling places.” Thus, the request for a performance review “by two dozen state senators” is a significant first step “toward a possible takeover of Fulton County’s elections.”
