ATLANTA, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – During a news conference at the State Capitol, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger outlined how the state is working to make sure each person gets one vote.

Monday morning, Raffensperger announced the creation of the Absentee Ballot Fraud Task Force.

Raffensperger says the task force is an additional step to ensure ballot security.

The task force will investigate every signature mismatch, interview voters with multiple votes from the same address. They will also come up with ways to investigate the use of non-residential addresses as voting registration addresses.

“We want to make sure that we have the most robust and appropriate roles to ensure that everyone’s vote counts once, it’s accurate and that trouble makers can’t do things that don’t abide by that principle of one person one vote,” Raffensperger said.

The team will consist of the state’s premier law enforcement experts, elections experts, district attorneys and solicitor generals selected by Raffensperger. Details on who will be on the task force will come at a later date.
