Georgia turns to TikTok to educate voters about the state's new voting system

Want to know how Georgia’s new voting machines are going to work? You may be able to get your answers from TikTok.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is hosting the first ever Georgia Secretary of State Secure The Vote TikTok voter education challenge.

As part of the campaign, Raffensperger is encouraging participants in the Secretary’s Student Ambassadors program to join a competition and create viral content that will educate their peers on Georgia’s new, secure paper ballot system through TikTok, a video-sharing mobile app. 

“We are working hard to educate Georgians of all ages about our new, secure, and verifiable paper ballot voting system,” said Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. “I look forward to engaging our Student Ambassadors to help get the word out to Georgia’s younger voters.”

Participating Student Ambassadors can win 200 Student Ambassador program points for each TikTok video they submit.

At the conclusion of the competition, the winners will be picked by Raffensperger and members of his communications staff. The winning TikTok will be judged on creativity and impact. Student Ambassadors will be able to find specific guidelines at

“I am looking forward to seeing all the TikTok video submissions,” said Assistant Press Secretary Anna Caroline Soldan, one of the judges of the competition. “This is an excellent opportunity for Student Ambassadors to not only express their creativity, but also to learn about marketing. I have no doubt that they will love this challenge.” 

The winning submission will be featured on Secure the Vote’s website and social media. Winners will also receive 1,000 points and Secure the Vote items.
