Kemp taps retired judge to head State Elections Board

Gov. Kemp has named a retired federal judge to chair the State Election Board, filling a position that opened more than a year ago when Kemp signed a new election law that removed Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger as a voting member of the five-person panel.

William S. Duffey joins a board with three Republicans and one Democrat. Duffey was nominated as a federal judge by Georgia W. Bush in 2004 and served until 2018.
