Georgia Sec of State investigating groups sending absentee ballots to out of state voters

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced he is opening an investigation into whether outside groups are registering people from other states to illegally vote in the Jan. 5 Senate runoff election.

On Monday he said, “we have opened an investigation into a group called America Votes, who is sending absentee ballot applications to people at addresses where they have not lived since 1994.”

According to Fox News, Raffensperger, a Republican, also said his investigators are looking into “Vote Forward, who attempted to register a dead Alabama voter, a woman, to vote here in Georgia.” 

The top election official also said his office was investigating the “New Georgia Project, who sent voter registration applications to New York City.”
