VALDOSTA, Ga. (WALB) - No dead people voted in the 2020 election in Lowndes County.
That was the concern from some Lowndes County residents recently, according to election officials.
Election officials said they did get phone calls from people checking to see if their deceased relatives were on voting rolls.
This comes after those callers heard of rumors and speculations on social media that this might happen.
Election officials said this did not happen and no deceased person in Lowndes County voted.
It was talked about during Tuesday night’s virtual regularly scheduled elections board meeting.
“Please put it out there that, that is not occurring and that is just misinformation with the intent of messing up the election, messing up people’s mind, messing up their confidence in the system,” said Deb Cox, the elections supervisor.
Election officials looked into this and found no evidence of it in Lowndes County. They also said there’s no indication of voter fraud in Lowndes County during the 2020 election either.
There are currently no voter investigations in Lowndes County.
