How to report voting problems in Georgia on Election Day

Record voter turnout in Georgia

ATLANTA - The polls are open and voters across the state are lined up and casting their ballots. State officials have said they're working hard to make sure Georgia's 6.6 million registered voters have a legal voting experience. If problems do arise, however, here is a guide to report them.

Secretary of State Brian Kemp encourages Georgia voters to report any voting irregularities or complaints involving elections to the office’s Investigations Division. All complaints are promptly reviewed by the division’s P.O.S.T.-certified law enforcement officers, and if warranted, officers will open a formal State Election Board investigation.

To submit a complaint, you can contact the office through Kemp’s social media or use the “Stop Voter Fraud” website and hotline at (877) 725-9797.

“In addition to the informational resources and tools we offer Georgians, we also work to ensure Georgians have secure, accessible, and fair elections in our state,” Kemp in a release. “We are making it easy to vote and hard to cheat.”

On Election Day, the polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Voters in line by 7 p.m. will be able to vote.
