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.

Voter Review Panel is a team consisting of Democrats, Republicans, and non-partisan members working together to judge voter intent for unclear paper ballots.
During the 2020 primary election, DeKalb County processed more absentee ballots than usual. We expect even more for the 2020 general election.
