On December 14, 2020, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp praised Georgia Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, for calling for a signature audit following the recent Presidential election.
“After calling for a signature audit repeatedly since the November 3rd election, I am glad Secretary Raffensperger has finally taken this necessary step to begin restoring confidence in Georgia’s election process. As hardworking Georgians head back to the polls for the January 5th runoffs, it is absolutely vital for every vote cast to be legal and for only legal votes to be counted.”
Georgia was the first state to demand a signature match early on, and now follows the states of Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania in verifying the election through a forensic audit.
