Legal Teams to Watch Ga. Elections

Besides voters, a large turnout for Tuesday's election will include more than one thousand lawyers watching Georgia's polls.

Organizers of the lawyer turnout say just about every poll
worker in the state will be under the watchful eye of legal teams.

State Election Board member Randy Evans says hundreds of attorneys in the Atlanta metro area and around the state have been trained on problems to look for on Election Day and what to do if they find them.

Evans estimates about 1,100 lawyers around Georgia will
participate.

The attorneys will represent the parties, the state and federal government, special interests and voting rights groups.

Evans is also general counsel for the state Republican Party but he has recused himself temporarily from party duties.
