True the Vote Partners With Georgia GOP to Ensure Transparent, Secure Ballot Effort for Senate Runoff Elections
True the Vote Reached Out to Both Parties to Offer Assistance With Critical Election Training and Resources
ATLANTA, Georgia – True the Vote today announced its partnership with the Georgia Republican Party to assist with the Senate runoff election process, including publicly available signature verification training, a statewide voter hotline, monitoring absentee ballot drop boxes, and other election integrity initiatives. Early in-person voting began today, December 14, for the January 5 runoff, and mail-in voting has already started.
"Georgia is Ground Zero in the fight to begin restoring integrity to America's election process. That’s why True the Vote is working around the clock to engage volunteers from all across the state to participate in this important effort with the goal of preventing a repetition of the uncertainties that arose from the November general election," said True the Vote Founder and President Catherine Engelbrecht. "We have focused our 'Eyes On Georgia' in these critical final days before the runoff, and we are thrilled to partner with the Georgia Republican Party, Chairman Shafer, and his team to ensure the law is upheld and law-abiding voters have their voices heard. True the Vote is already on the ground and proud to be serving Georgia voters with a laser focus on the effort to ensure a free, fair, and secure election for all Georgia voters irrespective of political party."
"We are grateful for the help of the True the Vote team in the fight for election integrity," said Georgia Republican Party Chairman David Shafer. "We are calling on all Georgians who care about the future of our country and the integrity of our elections to sign up as election day volunteers. The resources of True the Vote will help us organize and implement the most comprehensive ballot security initiative in Georgia history."
An offer to extend the same support to the Georgia Democratic Party by partnering in the interest of non-partisan election integrity has not received a reply to date. The letter, addressed to the party and to party chair Senator Nikema Williams, is available here [PDF].
