Georgia Senator-Elect Colton Moore Blasts Fraud-Denying SOS Raffensperger’s Ranked Choice Voting Scheme
Georgia Senator-Elect Colton Moore is slamming Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s scheme to promote ranked choice voting and make it more difficult for conservatives to be elected in the state.
Raffensperger said he would be pushing for ranked choice voting shortly after the Georgia runoff election that saw Republican U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker lose narrowly to Democrat Senator Raphael Warnock.
“Georgia is one of the only states in the country with a General Election Runoff. We’re also one of the only states that always seems to have a runoff. I’m calling on the General Assembly to visit the topic of the General Election Runoff and consider reforms,” Raffensperger told the New York Times.
“The General Assembly convenes in January and could select from a wide range of options to address this topic to help further the goal of safe, secure, and efficient elections,” he added.
Colton Moore, a Georgia state house representative who was elected to the state senate in the midterm elections, believes that Raffensperger’s proposed ranked choice voting scheme would help Democrats and establishment Republicans keep a stranglehold on power in the state.
“Our electoral process is far from perfect, but the establishment’s latest push for ranked choice voting will only further complicate elections and disenfranchise voters,” Moore stated.
“As elected officials, our number one top priority should be to restore faith in our election process and make sure that every voter in Georgia has their voice heard at the ballot box,” he added.
Moore explained how the ranked choice system will only further confuse voters and erode faith in the electoral process.
“If ranked choice voting was implemented, a candidate who received less than 20% of the initial count could potentially assume office following the instant run-off tabulations. Any candidate who fails to reach over 50% of the vote should not automatically assume elected office before first receiving a majority of support from Georgia’s voters,” Moore said.
“Democrats recommending unnecessary changes to how our leaders are elected is a major red flag because, historically, Democrats have only advocated for changes to election laws when they can use disenfranchisement to their advantage,” he continued.
“States that have implemented rank-choice voting have seen a larger number of ballots thrown out and lower voter turnouts. Our lawmakers should not be seeking to disenfranchise voters through changes to our electoral system. We should be doing everything in our power to amplify the voices of the people,” Moore added.
Georgia tea party activist Debbie Dooley explained how ranked choice voting has caused turmoil in the state of Alaska, resulting in conservatives losing races they otherwise would have won by design.
“Georgia currently allows ranked choice voting for overseas and military ballots. To expand that would be disastrous. RCV helps elect RINOs and Democrats. That is why Sarah Palin lost her congressional race to a Democrat and RINO. Murkowski won her race despite losing the first round,” Dooley said.
“Brad Raffensperger wants Georgia to move to a total ranked choice system. Just like when his office sent out 6.9 million absentee ballot applications in 2020 during the primary, his office has a history of caving to Democrats and giving them what they want just like he did with the Abrams Settlement deal,” she added.
Big League Politics has reported on how Raffensperger allowed Democrats to cheat while looking the other way during the 2020 presidential election, in order to dispatch Donald Trump and hurt the cause of America First for his own self-serving agenda:
“An election official in Fulton County, Georgia is blowing the whistle, revealing how Georgia Republican leaders were made aware of severe fraud immediately after the 2020 presidential election but chose to look the other way.
The whistleblower released a memo detailing the allegations of poll watcher Carter Jones, who saw riggers on the floor engaging in the double-counting of votes, violating the chain of custody repeatedly, handling ballots improperly, and bragging they were going to “f*ck sh*t up” in the aftermath of the vote.
