SAVANNAH, Ga. (WJCL) -- Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp announced Wednesday that his office is increasing its presence in Savannah leading up to the December 1 municipal election runoff. After receiving multiple complaints regarding the conduct of elections in Savannah on November 3, the Secretary of State’s office is taking every precaution to ensure each voter has their ballot properly cast and counted on December 1.

“As Georgia’s chief elections official, I want to ensure every voter gets their opportunity to vote in a secure, accessible, and fair election on December 1,” said Kemp on Wednesday. “My office will have boots on the ground during early voting and on Election Day.”

Kemp explained that the office’s increased presence will allow investigators to deploy immediately to any location with alleged election code violations. Secretary of State Investigators will be monitoring early voting sites, as well as Election Day precincts and the tabulation process. By also adding more eyes to the process, Kemp notes that will ensure voters’ confidence in the process.
