The Georgia State Elections Board says it will hold a two-day meeting on Tuesday, June 20, 2023, at 9 a.m.. and Wednesday, June 21, 2023, at 9 a.m.

The public is invited to attend the meeting, which will be held at the Georgia State Capitol on the third floor in the House Appropriations Room.

The SEB oversees local and county elections, enforces election law, hears complaints, and conducts investigations of alleged illegal or fraudulent activity related to elections. That includes not only questions about absentee ballots but also any illegal electioneering activities by candidates and elected or appointed officials. Some examples include allegations of campaigning too close to a polling place, handing out gifts to influence voters, or harvesting absentee ballots.

The agenda for the two-day meeting was not yet available as of press time May 18. You can read agendas, minutes, and transcripts, as well as hear some recordings of recent meetings, on the State Elections Board website. You also can look for SEB meeting recordings on Vimeo and YouTube.
