As the March presidential primary nears, the watchdog group Fair Fight Action is paying very close attention to see if all the new voting machines will be present in every Georgia county by Friday.
On Monday at the Sloppy Floyd Building in Atlanta, Fair Fight Action CEO Lauren Groh-Wargo gave a roomful of women attending a seminar on voting rights her temperature check — she’s concerned.
Afterwards, she told “Morning Edition” host Lisa Rayam that while she is wary, she’s also trying to be cautiously optimistic.
Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger told WABE last week that the timeline to get the voting machines delivered and ready for next month’s elections is “tight.”
But Raffensperger also says that a quick turnaround is possible and despite a few kinks in counties where the new machines have already been used, no one has been prevented from casting a vote.
