QUOTES
“…courts should be the arbiter of determining when it is appropriate to review ballots and records so that counties are not inundated in expensive and labor-intensive unofficial election audits. The current political climate of widespread election misinformation makes election workers’ jobs all the more challenging. Accordingly, legislators need to be consulting with them regarding these additional administrative burdens and potential dangers,” said Vasu Abhiraman, ACLU of Georgia Senior Policy Counsel and Deputy Political Director
