Bibb County election officials are checking addresses against county district maps to make sure people are voting in the right races for the new county commission, but they waited several days to begin checking after the Secretary of State's office recommended it.
Through Georgia Open Records requests, 13WMAZ found that:
--On Aug. 28, Bibb election officials notified the Secretary of State's office that some voters were listed in the wrong districts and had already voted. The Bibb officials asked for help solving the problem.
--That night, state election administration manager Erica Hamilton instructed Bibb officials to check addresses against the county district maps before handing voters ballots.
But Bibb's Chief Registrar Veronica Seals told 13WMAZ Monday that the board started checking the maps just last Friday, Sept. 6, more than a week later.
Hundreds more people voted in the meantime at the Board of Elections.
