The chief election official for Georgia’s most populous county has announced he will resign at the end of 2021 as the county continues to face attacks, conspiracy theories and a state-run performance review following the 2020 election.
Fulton County elections director Rick Barron submitted a letter of resignation Wednesday, defending the work of his office throughout a challenging election cycle that saw record turnout, an unprecedented amount of absentee ballots and a global pandemic that decimated both the number of polling places and election workers to staff them.
“Under the intense scrutiny of the last year, I believe our team has performed with grace and professionalism,” he said. “Even in the midst of threats to our personal safety, we have continued to make the interests of Fulton County voters our highest priority.”
Barron, who has worked for Fulton for over eight years, helmed an elections office that has been plagued by problems over the years, including long lines caused by machine issues and errors with absentee voting. In the June 2020 primary delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, polling place locations backed out of serving as voting sites — reducing the number of polls available — and poll workers unfamiliar with new voting equipment led to hourslong lines that garnered national attention.
Here is the letter:
The 2020 election was a disaster in Fulton County.
This is where many say the steal took place in Georgia.
