FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — Fulton County Commission Chairman Robb Pitts announced June 10 the establishment of a special Elections Task Force.
The purpose of the task force is to review the recent election process from top to bottom with emphasis on five key areas: facilities (polling places), equipment, personnel and training, logistics and communication.
The 10-member task force will be asked to review the election process and recommend changes that could be made in preparation for the August 13 runoff and the Nov. 3 general election.
“Once any changes have been submitted to me, I will pass them on to the Board of Registration and Elections for their consideration,” Pitts said. “Unfortunately, the issue has become partisan, on all levels. My goal is to fix the problem, be a part of the solution and get it right.”
Pitts has also asked County Manager Dick Anderson to convene an internal working group to review all election processes as well.
“Two sets of eyes on the solution is always a good thing,” Pitts said.
