Georgia Election Board to meet on voter registration allegations | www.myajc.com

The Georgia Election Board called a special meeting Wednesday to allow Secretary of State Brian Kemp to lay out his case involving dozens of allegedly fraudulent voter registration applications submitted by a Democratic-backed group.

It will be the first time Kemp addresses the scope of an investigation he launched last week, after receiving complaints about the New Georgia Project. Among the problems he listed were applications with inaccurate or false information, applications completed or “forged” after telephone conversations between voters and representatives of the group, and voters being told they were legally required to re-register to vote.

“We’re anxious to be forthcoming and as transparent as possible,” said Jared Thomas, Kemp’s spokesman. “We feel this is the proper venue to do that.”

The board will meet at 3 p.m. in Room 341 of the state Capitol. The board originally expected to take up the case at its regular Oct. 7 meeting — a day after the state’s voter registration deadline.
