The office of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger highlighted our new swing-state poll of Republicans and conservative-leaning independents, which found that most respondents trust their state election officials to administer elections in a free and fair manner.

Secretary Raffensperger’s office write:

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger applauded a recent poll of Georgia Republicans and conservative leaning independents showing that a strong majority of those surveyed “have confidence in election officials to count votes freely and fairly” in the state. The survey was conducted by the Secure Elections Project, a group dedicated to commonsense, nonpartisan election security reforms that prevent election hacking and voter fraud without restricting eligible citizens from accessing the polls.

“It’s gratifying to see hard work pay off,” said Raffensperger. “Secure elections and accessible voting are my top priorities, which is why I supported Georgia’s legislative efforts to ban foreign interference in elections and will continue to push for a state constitutional amendment that bans non-citizens from voting. Georgia voters understand the hard work being done across the state to keep Georgia #1 for election security.”

According to the Secure Elections Project, “67 percent of Georgia Republicans and conservative-leaning independents are satisfied with the state’s system of elections,” and 84 percent agreed with the statement “my vote counts.” The group quoted one Georgia respondent as saying “Our election process is solid. We have checks and balances in place to make sure we have a fair election, and all citizens are able to vote the way they choose.”

The survey also found that respondents did not rank election security as a top-of-mind issue for those planning to vote in the 2024 election, but rather a mid-tier concern ranking behind illegal immigration and the economy.
