SAVANNAH, Ga. — Officials with the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office say they are launching an investigation into illegal campaigning on election day in Savannah.

The Common Cause of Georgia, a grassroots organization, called for an investigation into potential violations of election day laws after reports of illegal campaigning near polls on election day.

Officials with the organization say the Chatham County Board of Elections didn’t handle the irregularities properly. Violating election day laws is a misdemeanor, and while officials here confirm there were people breaking the law and that they gave a verbal warning, some say that wasn’t enough.
