Reverend Warnock and Jon Ossoff Statement on Cobb County Early Vote Cuts

Atlanta, GA – Today, following the news of Cobb County cutting the number of early vote locations in half, Senior Pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church and Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate Reverend Raphael Warnock issued a joint statement with fellow U.S. Senate candidate Jon Ossoff:

“Georgia voters have shown all year that when the polls open, they will show up and break records. We expect the same for the runoffs, which is why election officials’ decision to cut the number of early vote locations in Cobb County in half is unacceptable. This plan will result in longer lines, longer wait times and more barriers to the basic right of casting a ballot. It’s especially disturbing that the voters who stand to be impacted the most are people of color. Cobb County must change course and restore the 11 early voting locations so that Georgians can participate in this critically important election.”
