A Georgia private school administrator allegedly agreed to sweep student records to find eligible voters to register in an effort to increase voter turnout for then-Senate candidates Raphael Warnock (D) and Jon Ossoff (D) ahead of the state’s runoff election on Jan. 5, 2021.
The Westminster Schools director of enrollment management Marjorie Mitchell said in a Facebook thread that the school would help register students with late birthdays by sweeping student records for eligible voters.
A supporter of Warnock and Ossoff said in a Facebook comment, “We need to get the seniors who will be 18 on Jan 5 registered to vote now! How do we go about that? All hands on deck for Ossoff and Warnock!”
Mitchell agreed to help increase the vote for the two Democratic Senate candidates, responding, “We got the current seniors registered, so we just need to sweep for any late birthdays.”
Screenshots of the Facebook comments were obtained by Wokeminster, a parent group associated with the school.
