Chattooga County Probate Judge Jon Payne told AM 1180 earlier this week that an Election Board could be in the future for the county. Several years ago Chattooga County voters had gone to the polls and voted for an election board, but it has not come to pass.
Payne said that State Representative Barbara Massey Reece is expected to introduce legislation this week that would create an election board in Chattooga County. The board would be comprised of an even number of Democrats and Republicans from the county and would oversee county elections.
The deadline to introduce legislation in the Georgia House is tonight at midnight.
