Georgia Sec. of State's Office continues investigation into New Georgia Project

EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - Fifteen Georgia counties are now reporting voter registration fraud to the Secretary of State's Office, including three counties in our area: Effingham, Toombs and Tattnall counties.

Secretary of State Brian Kemp said his office continues to investigate the New Georgia Project. The voter registration group is accused of forging signatures and providing false information.

Kemps said if you signed up through this group, you may want to make sure your registration form was processed.

“They can ask their local registrar right here in Chatham County or the surrounding counties to see if they are on the rolls, and if they are not, then they can use the online voter registration process or the traditional ways that we've done in the past, just filling out a paper form," Kemp said.
