GWINNETT COUNTY SOLICITOR-GENERAL’S OFFICE WARNS OF LEGAL ACTION IF GEORGIA H.B. 531 IS SIGNED INTO LAW
(Lawrenceville, Ga., Feb. 26, 2021) – If Georgia H.B. 531 passes and is signed into law, the Gwinnett County Solicitor-General’s Office is prepared to take legal action against the state of Georgia. H.B. 531 poses an undue burden upon the citizens of Gwinnett County during a global pandemic by removing absentee ballot drop boxes and removing Sunday early voting. The ramifications of H.B. 531 may increase the chance of possible civil disturbance and create a burden for local law enforcement and Gwinnett County Board of Registrations and Elections. The Gwinnett County Solicitor-General’s Office has a duty to protect the rights and safety of the citizens from any possible violent protests and unconstitutional actions.
