The State Election Board has referred 35 cases of election-law violations, including some involving metro Atlantans, to the attorney general or local district attorneys for criminal prosecution, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office announced.

“Election fraud is not tolerated in Georgia. When there is evidence of it, the people responsible face prosecution,” Raffensperger, who chairs the five-member board, said in a news release. “Georgia has multiple safeguards in place that allow our team of investigators to discover fraudulent voting. They worked to catch the wrongdoing in these cases, and they maintain the security of Georgia elections.”

Some of the organizations and metro Atlantans accused of election fraud, according to the release, are:

  • The New Georgia Project which allegedly submitted 1,268 voter registration applications after the 10-day deadline, causing voters to be disenfranchised in the March 19, 2019 special election
  • Samunta Shomine Pittman of Atlanta for allegedly submitting 70 false voter registration applications while canvassing for the Coalition for the People’s Agenda
  • Joseph Lee Blackmon of Atlanta for allegedly registering to vote while serving a felony sentence
  • Hassan Dawud Musaddiq of Decatur for allegedly voting while serving a felony sentence
  • Sharmaine Swift of Lithonia for allegedly submitting a false voter registration application
