Lyn Bomar, a poll worker at the Sandy Springs library, said she was a “very conscientious mother” and wanted to make sure her son and daughter-in-law had voted.
When she checked their names in the voter system, it didn’t show that their ballots had been cast. So she called them to make sure.
“There were a couple of lulls, so I pulled up a couple of other people that I knew,” Bomar said.
Bomar talked three people into voting again.
Richard Barron, the Fulton director of Elections and Registration, said both votes had counted. Repeat voting, he said, is “a violation of the law.”
“I think there’s going to be some serious consequences of it,” he said. “This isn’t going to be taken lightly.”
