Last month, hundreds of Georgia’s elections officials gathered in Athens for training, camaraderie and preparations for the busy year ahead.
Since the last time we checked in with the Georgia Association of Voter Registration and Elections Officials last fall, many things have changed.
Several election officials have stepped down, citing stress and a toxic 2020 election.
Because of that, there’s an influx of new people joining the ranks of poll workers, board members and staff. Along with new people there are new voting rules and procedures that must be followed with precision.
This week, we take a temperature check on the people who make our elections run.
