Zuckerberg-Funded 'Safe Elections' Project Announces Grants for Georgia Senate Runoff Elections


The Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) announced on Tuesday that it will provide additional “safe elections” grants to county election departments in Georgia in advance of the two U.S. Senate runoff elections that will be held on January 5, 2021.
