Georgia Morgan County Voting Machines Challenge

Tullos v. Raffensperger

Lawsuit filed by a Georgia voter against Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) and the Morgan County Board of Elections challenging the use of electronic voting machines in Morgan County, Georgia. The plaintiff alleges that there is “proof of widespread anomalies” in the county due to the use of electronic voting machines, which were allegedly “not legally certified by the Elections Assistance Commission” because the commission went “to great lengths to fraudulently represent documents and give a false account of laws, rules and regulations, in order to misrepresent” the accreditation status of certain machines.

In using these electronic voting machines, Raffensperger “seems to have disregarded many state and federal laws,” according to the plaintiff. The lawsuit claims that neither the “nor the People of GA ever voted to move from hand marked paper ballots to electronic machine voting as is required by law” and the county should therefore move back to primarily hand counting ballots. Relying on electronic voting machines, specifically Dominion voting machines, allegedly allows “for multiple avenues of hostile incursions into our elections” in violation of the First, 14th and 26th Amendments, the Help America Vote Act and multiple Georgia laws.

The lawsuit asks for Morgan County to immediately stop using electronic voting machines, “grant a referendum vote by the electors of Morgan county to decide on the use of any voting machines,” “grant a referendum vote by the electors of Morgan county to decide whether to increase the debt and/or taxes in Morgan county, as is required by law, in order to pay for voting machines,” immediately stop “the use of any electronic voter registration verification devices…since these devices allow for network-wide internet intrusions,” preserve “all 2020, 2021 and 2022 election documents, written or electronic, until a full investigation into the aforementioned allegations can be completed,” order a hand recount of all elections conducted since 2020 using electronic voting machines and request that the court “impanel a Grand Jury to investigate the numerous, felonious crimes that seem to have been perpetrated against the People of GA.”

On June 26 2023, the secretary of state’s motion to dismiss was granted. On July 5, the plaintiffs appealed the dismissal.

On January 17, 2024 the Georgia Supreme Court affirmed the decision granting the motion to dismiss.
