Bi-partisan DeKalb Board of Elections and DeKalb Democratic party urge Gov. Kemp to veto Voting Bills

The DeKalb County Democratic Committee and Board of Registrations and Elections (DeKalb BRE) joined the DeKalb House and Senate Delegation to denounce proposed voting bills on the steps of the Gold Dome on March 17.

“I was taught never to take our precious freedoms for granted,” Republican DeKalb BRE Vice-Chair Baoky Vu said in a statement. “The proposed so-called ‘elections integrity’ legislation … is nothing short of real voter suppression. If men and women in uniform such as Pat Tillman and Humayun Khan were willing to die fighting to defend our American democracy, then we must be willing to live fighting for it.”

DeKalb Democrats Denounce Outside Partisan Attack Against DeKalb’s Right to Vote

DeKalb Democrats Denounce Outside Partisan Attack Against DeKalb’s Right to Vote

The DeKalb County Democratic Committee is pleased to know that the DeKalb Board of Registration and Elections has upheld the principles of democracy by rejecting the partisan attack on the eligibility of DeKalb voters.

On Tuesday, December 22, the Republican Party and a Texas-based group called “True the Vote” wasted DeKalb taxpayers’ time and resources by challenging the eligibility of over 50,000 DeKalb citizens to vote in next month’s U.S. Senate runoffs. This is another blatant attack on our democracy by Republicans who do not reside in our state and Republican leaders who refuse to condemn these attacks.

Democrat or Republican, DeKalb voters should be free to exercise their right to vote without fear of losing it due to unscrupulous attacks.

We condemn the death threats and threats of sexual violence targeted at State Senator, Elena Parent (D-Decatur) for publicly questioning President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud on Thursday, December 3rd. State Senator Parent’s has had her phone and home address released, causing her to request police protection.
