As secretary of state, Brian Kemp has been a massive failure. In the past few weeks alone, three new problems have cropped up, only adding to the long list of errors Kemp is accountable for.
Here are three more ways that Kemp’s incompetence is affecting our elections in Georgia:
- Since 2004, voter registration applications have had incorrect, misleading language on them. These forms are still in use, and, according to his office, will not be replaced until after the upcoming Midterm Elections.
- A districting error (not for the first time, mind you), has lead to a lawsuit from a candidate of Kemp’s own party. Habersham County officials have confirmed that, indeed, voters did not receive ballots with the correct candidates on them and it may have changed the results in a very close election.
- Overseas voters — like those serving in the military or Peace Corps — have been denied access to key online systems for registering to vote and requesting an absentee ballot.
He’s also leaked the confidential data of every single voter — twice. He’s ignored blatant security problems with our outdated voting machines — also twice. And he’s attempted to purge voters from the rolls in violation of federal voting laws.
But somehow, that hasn’t been enough.
Kemp: This upcoming election will be the biggest performance review of your career so far, and your actions have not garnered much faith in your competence. If you had any other job, you would have been fired a long time ago.
Less than two months out from the November 6 Midterm Elections, voters should not be left wondering if our election system is secure, if they’ve been illegally purged from the voter rolls, if they will receive the correct ballot or if they will even be able to get a ballot in order to vote.
