1,000 Georgia residents who were caught double-voting in Georgia's primary could face felony charges and jail time.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said Tuesday that his office would investigate and, if appropriate, bring charges against anyone who voted twice in June.
Residents who were caught double-voting had cast their vote by mail and then in person on the day of the election.
"A double voter knows exactly what they’re doing, diluting the votes of each and every voter that follows the law," Raffensperger told reporters on Tuesday. "Those that make the choice to game the system are breaking the law. And as secretary of state, I will not tolerate it."
Raffensperger, a Republican, said there weren't enough double-votes to change the outcome of the primary elections.
President Trump and other Republicans warned of the potential for voter fraud with mail-in ballots. But Scott Hogan, executive director of the Democratic Party of Georgia, dismissed any suggestion of voter fraud.
Hogan said voter fraud is rare and he accused Raffensperger of wasting the taxpayer's time investigating double-voters.
"It is clear that rather than do his job of promoting the safety and security of our voting process, the secretary of state is instead pushing the GOP’s voting conspiracy theories and disinformation," Hogan said.
