Georgia Elections Board Moves Toward Eventual Fulton County Takeover


Georgia’s Election Board moved towards an eventual takeover of Fulton County Wednesday following mounting evidence of irregularities in the 2020 election.

The board’s unanimous vote was possible due to provisions in the state’s new voting law passed earlier this year, per Just the News.

The vote authorized a bipartisan, three-person panel to investigate Fulton County. If the panel confirms irregularities, the elections board could replace the county’s board of elections with its own administrator.
