Challenge against Georgia’s Voting Machines Dismissed
Atlanta – Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel today applauded a Fulton County Superior Court ruling that rejected a challenge to the constitutionality of Georgia’s electronic voting machines.
“No Georgian has been denied the right to vote by our voting systems, and our systems must pass a rigorous testing and certification process,” Handel said.
Georgia implemented electronic voting machines statewide in 2002.
Karen Handel was sworn in as Secretary of State in January 2007. The Secretary of State's office offers important services to our citizens and our business community. Among the office’s wide-ranging responsibilities, the Secretary of State is charged with conducting efficient and secure elections, the registration of corporations, and the regulation of securities and professional license holders. The office also oversees the Georgia Archives and the Capitol Museum.
