The Georgia Office of Secretary of State led to overhaul voting machines across the state to ensure security and efficiency in our coming elections.
Georgia's new voting system combines electronic voting machines with a verifiable paper ballot so that voters are able to review the vote prior to casting it. When a voter confirms their paper ballot is accurate, that voter then places the ballot into an optical scanner to tabulate their vote.
She Leads GA
"She Leads GA" is a new program initiated by the Secretary of State designed to educate women on finances and investing. The program also helps empower women to become more financially able to start a business.
She Leads involves community-based workshops that specifically address the challenges facing women. It brings together leaders from the financial sector and other institutions to engage and collaborate with one another.
Working to Secure a Clean Voter Roll
Brad made a commitment to clean up Georgia’s voter rolls by joining the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) and he kept that promise. ERIC is a multi-state partnership that uses a sophisticated and secure data-matching tool to improve the accuracy and efficiency of state voter registration systems. Through ERIC, states can share voter registration information to improve the integrity of voter lists.
Securing the Vote
Nothing is more important to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger than holding secure elections and protecting the sanctity of your ballot. Brad led to pull together a fair bid process to ensure Georgians receive the most secure voting system in the United States.
Removing Red Tape for Georgia’s Businesses
As a legislator, Brad introduced legislation to provide multi-year options for business registration and made it a priority to implement these options as our Secretary of State. Georgia businesses that do file their annual registrations can now register for one, two or three years. Businesses who opt to register for two or three years will enjoy a lighter regulatory burden.
