Kemp: Georgians can be confident in elections

ATLANTA (AP) – Georgia’s top elections official says people should be confident in Georgia’s elections system when polls open on Tuesday.

Secretary of State Brian Kemp is traveling the state Monday to discuss preparations.

The agency’s investigations division has opened 25 investigations during the early voting period. Kemp says that’s typical for a presidential year. He said none of the reports indicate widespread problems.

Kemp also updated record-breaking totals for early voting, saying more than 2.37 million people cast ballots.

Kemp is urging people to use his office’s web site to find the correct polling place and look at a sample ballot. He says people shouldn’t get anxious if lines are long and noted that Georgia law allows anyone in line by the 7 p.m. poll closing time to vote.

Polls open at 7 a.m.
