Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said he has spent his time in office working to ensure the state’s elections are conducted with integrity.

In an opinion piece published Wednesday in USA Today, he detailed how his office worked to improve the state's voting process. He said he worked with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to strengthen signature matching for absentee ballot voters, outlawed ballot harvesting, and implemented a new voting system with printed paper-ballots that voters could hold and review before casting their ballots. 

He called the Nov. 3 election — which saw a record 1.3 million votes cast by absentee ballot, 2.7 million ballots cast during early voting, and 1 million ballots cast on Election Day — a “wildly successful and smooth election.”

“We finally defeated voting lines and put behind us Fulton County’s now notorious reputation for disastrous elections,” he said. “This should be something for Georgians to celebrate, whether their favored presidential candidate won or lost.”

He then called out President Donald Trump and his election challenges.

“My family voted for him, donated to him and are now being thrown under the bus by him,” Raffensperger wrote.

He said Georgian voters had “every reason” to feel confident in the election process and outcome. He called out Trump’s campaign for refusing to “accept the facts" of the election results. 

“In times of uncertainty, when the integrity of our political system is most at risk, the integrity of our politicians is paramount,” he wrote.
