Newton GOP Meeting

In light of the all the News and Issues surrounding the past Election I thought we could all benefit from some education about Elections and the ins and outs of how and why we do what we do. We have a very important meeting 11/26/18 at 7pm at the Covington Municipal Airport Conference Room, our Guest Speaker will be Angela Mantle of the Newton County Board of Elections. Angela has graciously agreed to come in and give the background of how our elections work. This will prove to be very valuable information so please do not miss out and bring a friend or neighbor. I have asked Angela along with educating us on the electoral process in Newton County to please be prepared for a Q & A session. Please don’t miss this important meeting and come prepared to ask questions.

Some of the topics I have asked her to cover:
  • What is the Election Board and how does it function?
  • What is an Absentee Ballot and what qualifies and disqualifies it?
  • What is a Provisional Ballot and what qualifies and disqualifies it?
  • What is the difference between Poll Managers, Workers, Watchers and Monitors?
  • What is the current Law pertaining to the number of representatives from the Democrat and Republican Parties on the Election Board including the Chairman?
  • What are the qualification to be a Registered Voter and what will disqualify you?
  • What are your takeaways from the Governor’s race in light of Media noise and the lawsuits?
Be sure to share this with your friends, family, and neighbors who may not receive our newsletter.

Hope to see you there,
Scott Jay
NCRP Chairman
