Georgia Republican Secretary Of State’s Voter Info Website Is Down On Election Day
If you’re in Georgia and looking for the closest polling place, too bad for you. The state’s “My Voter Page” went offline sometime Tuesday morning and the site is still down.
However, the website Find Your F*cking Polling Place is operable.

Some users reported they could get the site’s splash page to load, but when they entered their information, they were told that no match could be found in their county for their information.
The Georgia Senate race between Republican David Perdue and Democrat Michelle Nunn is one of the most hotly contested in the nation. Georgia Republicans have seen their significant polling advantages erode steadily over the last year.
Democratic State Senator Jason Carter — grandson of former President Jimmy Carter — is also in a statistical dead heat for the governor’s office against Republican incumbent Gov. Nathan Deal.
Republican Sec. of State Brian Kemp’s office maintains the website. Kemp stated earlier this year that the job of Republicans is to block the Democratic Party’s efforts to organize and mobilize black and Latino voters into a viable voting bloc.
“Democrats are working hard, and all these stories about them, you know, registering all these minority voters that are out there and others that are sitting on the sidelines,” Kemp told supporters in July, “if they can do that, they can win these elections in November.”
Kemp’s office Tweeted a phone number for voters to use in order to try and locate their polling places. But of course, you’d have to be a Twitter user to know that. And you’d also have to be following his Twitter account, which would likely make you a Republican. That information will not be widely known in Democratic circles.
When 40,000 voter registrations magically disappeared from the state’s database recently, Georgia State Minority leader Stacey Abrams, whose New Georgia project spearheaded the voter registration drive said, “We asked the Secretary of State to meet with us. We wanted to understand if we were doing something wrong, or if there was another database we didn’t have access to. But he refused to meet with us.”
Of course he did. [su_csky_ad]
