Georgia recognized for enhanced election security and innovation
By Tammy Joyner
Georgia has been recognized by a federal election commission for its use of enhanced security measures and innovations during last year’s presidential election.
The U.S. Election Assistance Commission cited the Georgia Secretary of State office’s use of line-monitoring technology to track wait times at polling places during early-voting and to address technical problems that arose on Election Day in real time. Donald Palmer, the new USEAC chairman and an appointee of former Pres. Donald Trump, recognized Secretary Brad Raffensperger’s decision to use ESRI’s ArcGIS technology during the election.
