Secretary Raffensperger Referring 17 Cases of Suspected Double Voting to Local District Attorneys

January 16th, 2024

Atlanta – Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is referring 17 casefiles to district attorneys related to individuals suspected of voting twice in the 2022 General Election. These individuals are suspected of voting once in Georgia as well as casting an additional ballot in the 2022 General Election in another state. District Attorneys will evaluate these casefiles and pursue indictments where appropriate. 

These allegations were brought forth due to Georgia’s membership in the Electronic Registration Information Center, also known as ERIC. This network of 24 states and the District of Columbia shares interstate data to improve the quality of election administration by promoting accurate voter rolls and identifying illegal voting. ERIC is the best large-scale tool available to identify illegal voting across states.

“One illegal vote cast is too many,” said Secretary Raffensperger. “Georgians deserve to have their voice heard fully, not have it diluted by bad actors.”

The cases of double voting involve records from Barrow, Chatham, Cobb, Douglas, Fannin, Forsyth, Fulton, Morgan, and Tift counties who are believed to have cast a ballot in another state. 


Georgia is recognized as a national leader in elections. It was the first state in the country to implement the trifecta of automatic voter registration, at least 17 days of early voting (which has been called the “gold standard”), and no-excuse absentee voting. Georgia continues to set records for voter turnout and election participation, seeing the largest increase in average turnout of any other state in the 2018 midterm election and record turnout in 2020, and 2022. 2022 achieved the largest single day of in-person early voting turnout in Georgia midterm history utilizing Georgia’s secure, paper ballot voting system. Most recently, Georgia ranked #1 for Election Integrity by the Heritage Foundation, a top ranking for Voter Accessibility by the Center for Election Innovation & Research and tied for number one in Election Administration by the Bipartisan Policy Center.
