Garland Favorito, Founder of VoterGA, will be the special guest speaker at Manuel’s Tavern in September.
“His presentation cuts through false dialogues on both sides to help you understand the real issues about our current voting system. These include system certification, internet vulnerabilities, the impact of the KSU voting file exposure, historical Georgia voting system problems and 10 studies on our system security issues.
Many facts included in the GA6 election challenge are also included this presentation. It will also present statistical anomalies of the GA 6 runoff election that led over a dozen election integrity advocates to conclude that tampering may have occurred.”
Presented by VoterGA and Common Cause Georgia
