Sheila Edwards~ Cobb County Commissioner District 4

Growing up in a small town in SC was not easy and being one of nine children was even more difficult. You always had to figure out where you fit in. But as a young child, with not much to offer, I knew that I had service flowing in my blood. And, as a much older adult, I have always known that I was raised to serve others, which is reflected in the work I have been doing to improve the quality of life for those around me. I never let anything get in my way in serving my community. I will never apologize for being a strong advocate for our community and I will continue to put myself out there in service of others. As I contemplated placing my hat in the ring for this position, I recalled years ago words my daughter would often say to me when she was younger and annoyed that I was always out advocating on this issue or that one. Why does it always have to be you out here doing this? I said if not me, then who?

Attention District 4 Voters - The Deadline to Cure Your Provisional Ballots and Absentee Ballots is Friday, August 14, 2020,
Thank you to the District 4 voters who participated in the August 11, Runoff Election that was held yesterday. I have been informed by the Cobb County Board of Elections that it has hundreds of votes to count before the election for Cobb County Commissioner for District 4 can be certified.

These uncounted votes fall into two categories, Deficient Provisional Ballots and Absentee Ballots that need signature (i.e. signature needs to be verified) or information cures (i.e. information needs to be provided or verified). I am told that action is required by the voter for these votes to be counted.

The Cobb Board of Elections informed me that it has sent letters to all voters that fall into these categories. If you have received this letter from the Board of Elections, please respond immediately to their office by close of business on Friday, August 14, 2020. If you have questions or concerns about this process or how your vote was handled on Tuesday, please contact Attorney Terry Cummings, who can assist you with getting the matter cured and your vote counted at: terrycummings360@gmail.com

The position of my campaign is that the election process is not over until every vote is counted, which was reinforced by the Georgia Secretary of State's Office in their memo on Post-Election Instructions Re: Absentee and Provisional Ballots

Our campaign is relying on the Cobb Board of Elections and the Georgia Secretary of State's Office to ensure that this process is followed based on this information and that all votes in this runoff election are counted.

My advocacy on ensuring that every vote is counted embraces Stacey Abrams' commitment to ensuring every vote is counted through Fair Fight, a 20-state, multimillion dollar campaign to promote free and fair elections.​
