In an interview on WSB Radio this morning, host Scott Slade asked Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger what he thought of the Carter Center’s announcement that it would monitor the Nov. 3 election for fairness – its first observation mission inside the borders of the U.S.
Raffensperger, the state’s top election official, didn’t say he approved – but he didn’t disapprove, either:
“Our office has been reaching out to nonprofit groups such as the Carter Center. We’ve been working with the King Center, the bishop of the AME church — he wants to volunteer his churches as polling locations…
“We always welcome people that want to be part of the positive, constructive solution, making sure that it’s easy to vote In Georgia, that we have the appropriate safeguards. Because we understand we’re going to have a big turnout this year. Both sides are watching this, even folks down the middle.”
