Committee Urged to Reject Amendment, Pass SB 463

This amendment to SB 463 would be a step backward. It would eliminate an option that Georgia’ elections officials will likely need in the fall elections. Voters should not ever be forced to choose between their health and exercising their right to vote. In pandemic conditions, sending absentee ballot applications to voters is one of the best ways to ensure their ability to vote safely.

Statement by Aunna Dennis, Executive Director, Common Cause Georgia

The obstacles that Georgia’s voters have faced in this election are simply unacceptable. It’s also unacceptable that the officials entrusted with administering the elections have spent the day dodging blame, rather than accepting responsibility. Georgia’s voters deserve better.

Common Cause Georgia Urges Voters to Consider Absentee Voting in June Elections

Given the uncertainties surrounding the public health situation, we urge all Georgians to consider using absentee ballots to vote in the upcoming primary elections. Absentee voting is a safe and secure way to participate in that most essential of American activities: helping to choose our government officials.

Common Cause Georgia Urges Secretary Raffensperger to Disband “Absentee Ballot Task Force”

Secretary Raffensperger recently announced an “Absentee Ballot Task Force” with incredibly broad authority to investigate Georgians who choose to vote by mail. The situations that would trigger an investigation disproportionately affect voters from racial and ethnic minorities, younger voters, low-income voters and those who don’t have a traditional “residential” address.

Statement of Cindy Battles, on behalf of Common Cause Georgia

We support Secretary of State Raffensperger’s decision to mail absentee ballot applications to all registered voters. Sending absentee ballot applications to all registered voters will make it accessible and secure for Georgians to vote by mail, if they choose to.

DOJ, SEC & Ethics Complaints Filed Against Senator Loeffler

Today, Common Cause filed complaints calling for investigations of Sen. Kelly Loeffler. “Voters have the right to expect that our elected officials put our interests first,” said Common Cause Georgia Program Coordinator Cindy Battles. “And there shouldn’t be any question about it. Obviously, in this situation, there are questions about how Sen. Loeffler handled the information received in private briefings. There are also questions about whether she should have shared that information with her constituents, back in January when she received it. We look forward to the results of these investigations.”
