FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — Fulton County's registration chief, Ralph Jones, has resigned after more than 12 years of service, a county spokesperson confirmed.
Jones was one of the county officials onsite at State Farm Arena on Election Night, as the counting of ballots continued past midnight.
Those hours became a fixation of the Trump campaign's efforts to discredit Fulton County's handling of the election. In his position, Jones became a target of the former president's supporters who sought to prove an Election Night conspiracy at the arena.
Sec. Raffensperger has frequently characterized Fulton County as a problem district in terms of election administration, even as he sought to stress the overall legitimacy of Georgia's election results.
A statement from a Fulton County spokesperson read, "We are grateful for his [Jones] friendship and many contributions to the Department of Registration & Elections and wish him well in his future endeavors."
Barron, the Fulton elections director, has defended his the county's performance by saying they've received insufficient support from the state.
