To Gov. Brian Kemp: 

You were voted in as governor of the state of Georgia to represent the people of Georgia and their interests. We live in a country built on the foundation of people and people’s right to a fair election. 

Our trust in the fairness of our system is cracked with the use of the Dominion software program.

In the runoff, we need to see a paper ballot system in place where signatures are verified and votes are counted fairly. 

It is the only way to ensure that the election is done right. You are either doing right or you are doing wrong and trust me, the truth will come out. Do what is right by the people you represent and give us a fair run off in January!
