After Historic Mismanagement and Voter Suppression by GA SOS, Sarah Riggs Amico Demands Every Vote Be Counted

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

ATLANTA, GA:  As thousands of votes across Georgia remain uncounted, Sarah Riggs Amico, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, released the following statement:

“Protecting the right of every eligible voter to cast their ballot and have it accurately counted is a sacred duty for those who serve in elected office, and it is one that Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has made clear he disdains, to the detriment of our democracy and the rights of Georgia voters. This is unacceptable. The Secretary of State must assure Georgians he is committed to counting every ballot fairly cast in the primary election, including provisional and absentee ballots, and take active steps to fix this system immediately.

Additionally, any candidate claiming victory based on partial results is dishonoring the voices of hundreds of thousands of voters who, in good faith, turned in absentee ballots or stood in long lines late into the night in the pouring rain to make their voices heard. Dismissing or ignoring valid ballots from these voters is an audacious affront to the entire voting rights movement and takes a page straight from the voter suppression playbook championed by Republicans like Brian Kemp and Brad Raffensperger. It is a slap in the face to every Georgia voter for a candidate to unilaterally declare an outcome in this race when hundreds of thousands of ballots remain uncounted. Candidates for elected office awaiting results should be more invested in protecting Georgia voters’ rights than in advancing their own political careers.”
