(Reuters) – Georgia electoral authorities have launched an investigation into third groups trying to attract new voters who could determine control of the U.S. Senate ahead of a special election in January, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said Monday.
Raffensperger said his office is reviewing America Votes, Vote Forward, and the New Georgia Project's registration efforts. He said some groups had encouraged people living outside Georgia to register to vote in the state.
"These third groups have a responsibility not to promote illegal voting. If they do, they will be held accountable," he said.
Raffensperger said his office has also opened multiple investigations into allegations of misconduct in the US presidential election.
