Statement From Secretary Brian Kemp On The Passage Of HB 310
Just moments ago, the House of Representative passed House Bill 310 out of the Chamber by an overwhelming majority. The bill will now go to Governor Nathan Deal for his signature. I want to thank House and Senate leaders for passing this important piece of legislation the first week of the legislative session. Governor Deal and members of the General Assembly showed tremendous leadership in ensuring that Georgia voters will continue to have a uniform voting calendar rather than two separate calendars for federal and state elections. This would have been a tremendous fiscal cost to the counties and incredibly confusing for Georgia voters. As Georgia’s Chief Elections Officer, I will continue to work each day to make sure Georgia has a secure, accessible and fair elections process.
