What part of I HAVE PERMISSION do you not comprehend? Railfan2012 (talk) 01:31, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

The part where you think you have "permission" to edit war. – Muboshgu (talk) 01:32, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

Content discussion[edit]

Hi Huns With Guns, Longhair. I saw that the two of you are going back and forth over the following content. Talk it out here, please.

The Georgia Secretary of State has has accused the Democratic Party without evidence of hacking into the state’s voter database. The Georgia Secretary of State has been one of the few state election officials to refuse help from the federal Department of Homeland Security to deter foreign and domestic hacking of voter registration databases. Slate source

Offhand the content does need to be edited for grammar and re-written. It also needs to be sourced to more than one source, as the Slate source by itself doesn't really show a depth of coverage. It's also not exactly a neutral source either, so more coverage would help ensure that there's a good overview of the event. That said, there is definitely more coverage out there such as this, this, and this.

I would personally re-write this to something along these lines:

On November 5, 2018 Kemp announced that he was opening an investigation to determine whether or not the Democratic Party of Georgia has hacked the voter database, citing failed attempts to hack the state's online voter registration and My Voter Page as the impetus for the investigation.[1] Abrams has responded to the investigation, calling it a stunt and a "witch hunt".[2][3] Kemp has been criticized by media outlets such as Slate for pursuing an investigation days prior to the election and for what was seen as not enough evidence to suggest that any cyber crimes were committed by the Democratic Party of Georgia.[4]

This could probably itself be tweaked some, but this is just a quick and dirty rundown I typed up in a few minutes. ReaderofthePack (。◕‿◕。) 19:38, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Election results[edit]

Exactly what is preventing us from listing Kemp as having been elected? We need clarity on this. GoodDay (talk) 19:58, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

(Geez. All I did was revert one edit and things blow up.) Alright, let me start at the top for why this is an issue; no one seems to have a clear idea as to how many votes remain to be counted. This prevents the normal system of a member from the National Election Pool from calling the race, as well as the AP News-Fox News-National Opinion Research Center group. In addition, there is a continuing of articles from organizations saying that the election has not been fully decided. I believe that it should be fair to say that Kemp has the majority of votes, but I cannot fully say if the runoff has been prevented. Speaking of which, it will be difficult to say that the runoff cannot occur until all lawsuits by both parties have resolved themselves. (I do not know if Kemp's campaign has done so, but it is possible. Too many elections not finished right now.) --Super Goku V (talk) 07:53, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
Going to amend my earlier comments a bit. AP News, which is part of the mentioned AP-FOX-NORC group, has clarified that they are not going to review any changes to voting counts until the next deadline for voting counts, which is Tuesday. Nothing so far from any member of the NEP. --Super Goku V (talk) 08:56, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
There should be a section that chronicles the contentious vote counting process.
Georgia Vote Shows Signs of Tampering, Civil Rights Group Says By Erik Larson. Bloomberg L.P. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.181.23.220 (talk) 21:13, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Abrams conceded[edit]

Abrams acknowledged Kemp as the victor. Page should be adjusted accordingly — Preceding unsigned comment added by LeeIaccoca1992 (talkcontribs) 22:34, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

There is a problem regarding the whole issue, which I am trying to address in the topic below. --Super Goku V (talk) 22:38, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

November 16th speech[edit]

While I know that this article is quite behind on update, I think this needs to be addressed. In a speech today, Abrams agrees that Kemp will be certified by the Secretary of State in the election. Abrams is also stating that "This is not a speech of concession." Additionally, the Abrams campaign is filling a federal lawsuit against the state of Georgia for mismanagement of the election. And, finally, she has announced the creation of an organization called Fair Fight Georgia. What should the article say then regarding all of this? --Super Goku V (talk) 22:35, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

It has no effect on this election. It might have an effect on the 2022 Georgia gubernatorial election. GoodDay (talk) 02:48, 18 November 2018 (UTC)

Hacking[edit]

The § Electoral controversies section should probably mention the hacking/federal intervention issue mentioned here, though that particular article "feels OpEd-ish" and we should probably use more neutral-sounding sources. —[AlanM1(talk)]— 21:24, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
