Secretary of State Kemp Encourages Voters to use E-Government Solutions that Increase Voter Education and Prevent Election Fraud
Atlanta – Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp today encouraged voters to use two e-government solutions his agency implemented this year, which provide election resources for voters and allow Georgians to assist with preventing election fraud.
The MVP voter education website allows Georgia voters to view a sample ballot specific to them for upcoming elections, find their Election Day polling location and early voting locations in their county, check their registration status, track the status of their absentee ballot, and more.
“MVP is an invaluable educational resource for voters. We want to put as much information in the hands of the voter as we can, in an easy-to-use format. The goal is for every voter in the State of Georgia to have the information he or she needs to be able to make the voting process work for them,” said Kemp, a national leader in implementing e-government solutions for his state’s voters.
The Stop Voter Fraud website allows Georgians to report questionable election activity online or via the Stop Voter Fraud hotline. Citizens who witness questionable election-related activity can submit a Stop Voter Fraud form, or call the Secretary of State’s Voter Fraud Hotline at 877-725-9797.
Secretary Kemp said, “This e-government solution gives Georgians the opportunity to help us take every measure possible to ensure the integrity, security, and fairness of our elections process.”
Georgia voters can access the MVP and Stop Voter Fraud websites at www.sos.ga.gov.
Brian Kemp was sworn in as Secretary of State in January 2010. 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.
