Fulton County’s registration chief, Ralph Jones, has resigned after more than 12 years of service, a county spokesperson confirmed.
Jones was one of the county officials onsite at State Farm Arena on Election Night, as the counting of ballots continued past midnight.
Sec. Raffensperger has frequently characterized Fulton County as a problem district in terms of election administration.
In July, Georgia Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger called for the firing of Jones and Fulton County’s elections director, Rick Barron.
A statement from a Fulton County spokesperson read, “We are grateful for his [Jones] friendship and many contributions to the Department of Registration & Elections and wish him well in his future endeavors.”
