Georgia Secretary of State, Brian Kemp, announced this week the establishment of an Elections Advisory Council. This council was established in order to review the Georgia Election Code and State Election Board Rules. After reviewing these two sets of regulations, the Council will make suggestions in order to improve them. Particular attention will be paid to issues that will increase the efficiencies of state, county, and local governments, as well as cost-saving measures.
This Council includes members of the Democrat and Republican parties, as well as Independents, and Libertarian David Shock, an Associate Professor of Political Science at Kennesaw State University. "I want to thank Secretary of State Brian Kemp for creating the Elections Advisory Council composed of individuals representing the diverse geographic regions and political views of Georgia. As a member of the council, I hope to provide constructive feedback to help build a better electoral system in this state," said Shock, who joins other experienced elections officials and community leaders on the council.
"I commend Secretary Kemp for including a voice from the Libertarian Party of Georgia, especially one so well-respected and intelligent as David Shock," stated Brett Bittner, the Party's Executive Director. "I think that he realizes how important it is to have input from across the political spectrum and from all facets of government to provide the people of Georgia with the results that are the goal of this council. My hope for the Elections Reform Council is a recommendation for greater access to the ballot for all candidates, regardless of party affiliation, and more choice for the voters of Georgia, as a part of the reforms presented."
The Libertarian Party is Georgia’s third largest political party and the only party in Georgia promoting fewer taxes, less government and personal liberty for all Georgians. To learn more, please visit www.LPGeorgia.com
