The Cobb County Board of Elections and Registration is having a special called meeting tomorrow, December 18, at 3 p.m. to hear a complaint by Jason Shepherd, the Chairman of the Cobb County Republicans.

The meeting will be available via videoconference by following this link.

If you wish to sign up to speak via teleconference during public comments the registration link is available on the county website at this link.

The complaint is an attempt to remove 16,024 from eligibility to vote in Cobb County for the January 5 runoff.

Cobb County Communications Director Ross Cavitt wrote the press in an email, “For background, the Board’s attorney says this will essentially be a “probable cause” hearing where they will hear his evidence and decide if it warrants a full hearing in the matter.”

A copy of the complaint was not available, and the Courier has reached out to the GOP’s Chairman Shepherd requesting the complaint and more information.

We will provide an update when more information becomes available.

The announcement of the purpose of the meeting reads as follows:

To hear a challenge to the qualifications of 16,024 voters and their eligibility to vote in the January 5, 2021 General Runoff Election pursuant to the Official Code of Georgia Annotated §21-2-230 (a).

  1. Way to guarantee 16K voters and their families and friends will never vote Republican. Ever. This effort will succeed about as much as one of Trump’s lawsuits. Can y’all take this to the surrounding counties too? The people need to see the local party is as rotten as the national one.

    Republicans literally have lost their minds.

  3. Beyond Ridiculous. Just say the quiet part out loud. In order to win you have to suppress votes

  4. Yes again, more loss of faith in the Republican party. Boy they really want us all never to consider anhone ever in red. They need to salvage whatever dignity they have left cause this will be remeberfor a very long time. At least feom all the Republicans in my circles, and I had a lot. This part of the election sure is helping me turn people. It had to be this ridiculous to do it with some. But to be real, all this shit they are pulling now, it’s helping turn the hardest of minds. So keep making a fool of yourself Reps. It only fules that flipping reds to blues. ❤—>💙—>👌🙌✌

  5. Stop the steal! Purging voters, suppressing turn-out is the real Art of the Steal by GoPers.

  6. They don’t care about fair elections. They will do whatever is necessary to win. So instead of putting energy and money to earn someone’s vote, they would rather put their resources into taking someone’s right to vote away. This is just a very ugly side to the Republican Party. The very sad thing is, they have no problem doing it and are almost proud of it. So disappointing. Hopefully, Republicans who can see through this, will think again and not vote for them.

  7. The GOP knows that if people are allowed to vote, they will eventually lose all power. It’s sad that they have gotten to the point that they don’t even care if they do it out in the open any more.

  8. These “retardicans”!!!!! And who suppressed voters and try to steal an election? This the stunt Crooked Kemp pulled to get himself in the governor’s seat.

  9. Voter Suppression is un-American!

  10. VOTER SUPPRESSION BY THE EXTREME RIGHT WING THAT IS DESTROYING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY THAT USED TO BE FAIR MINDED, BUT HAS BEEN INVADED BY HATE-FILLED TERRORISTS TYPES WITH NO INTEGRITY… WHITE PRIVILEGE AT ITS WORST
