Voting & Elections 06.4.2024

Cherokee County Commissioners Compromise Bipartisanship; Pro-democracy Groups Send Letters to Board of Commissioners

“The Board of Elections has a responsibility to act within the best interest of its constituents. This attempt to vote out a democratic member goes against that," said Aunna Dennis, executive director of Common Cause Georgia.

If implemented, these proposed rules could unnecessarily delay certification and threaten our free and fair democracy.

“These election bills do nothing to help Georgia voters," said Anne-Gray Herring, policy analyst of Common Cause Georgia. " Instead, they add unnecessary burdens on an already safe and secure voting process."

“This bill clearly chills the voices of Georgia voters who deserve an opportunity to choose their elected officials in their respective districts," said Anne-Gray Herring, policy analyst of Common Cause Georgia.

HB 1312 could add an extra two years to the six-year terms of commissioners on the all-Republican body.

“This election bill has harmful provisions that cater to conspiracy theories rather than helping voters and election workers," said Anne-Gray Herring, policy analyst of Common Cause Georgia.

Common Cause Georgia Calls on Legislature to Pass Compliant Voting Maps 

ATLANTA — A three-judge panel for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia issued a stay in Common Cause v. Raffensperger, the federal court challenge of Georgia’s 2021 congressional voting map. The trial set to begin on November 13, 2023 has been postponed in light of the state defendants’ decision to not seek a stay pending appeal of a separate challenge to the maps that resulted in a court ruling that found that map in violation of the Voting Rights Act (VRA). That ruling ordered the Georgia Legislature to draw new Congressional and state legislative voting maps by December 8, 2023. The Georgia General Assembly will convene in a special session beginning November 29, 2023 to consider new voting maps.
