Let’s Renew Integrity
Republican Candidate for Georgia Secretary of State
Jody Hice’s Plan for Georgia
Stand In the Gap Against the National Takeover of Elections
Jody Hice is not new to fighting for free and fair elections. At the federal level, he serves on the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
On this committee, Hice has fought the Democrats’ attempts to permanently take over our country by standing against H.R. 1, an attempt to nationalize elections. If signed into law, it could be the end of our democracy. Here are some of the ways this bill would impact Georgia:
Georgia will be forced to…
• Automatically register legal and non-legal individuals
• Count absentee ballots received up to 10 days after Election Day if postmarked by Election Day
• Permit vote harvesting that empowers liberal third-party groups to collect ballots in mass
• Allow felons to vote
• Conduct automatic and same-day voter registration
H.R. 1 has already been passed by the House and is currently in the Senate. If passed by the Senate, Joe Biden will make it law, and it will be up to our Secretary of State to defend Georgia against this bill. Jody Hice is ready to take on the Biden Administration, even if that means facing a lawsuit from the Biden Justice Department for refusing to implement H.R. 1.
Aggressively Pursue Voter Fraud
Using the investigative arm of the Secretary of State’s Office, Hice will make sure all allegations of voter fraud are pursued, investigated, and prosecuted when necessary. Hice also wants to minimize the opportunity for voter fraud by ensuring absentee ballot request forms can only be sent from the Secretary of State’s office.
Enforce SB 202
• Enforce ID laws to request and return ballots
• Ensure absentee ballots are printed properly, securely, and clearly
• Make sure absentee ballot drop boxes (now required by law) are monitored at all times when accessible during the election process
• Ensure ballots are counted in a time-efficient manner and the results by in-person, mail-in, and early voting are reported to the public on election night
Replace Dominion Voting Software
Georgians deserve a voting system that they trust, period.
Modernize Business Registration & Licensing
• Streamline and modernize the Secretary of State’s website making it easier to register and renew corporations
• Ensure the 42 licensing boards that the Secretary of State’s office support are equipped to expedite licensing to our Georgia workers
• Implement a 15-day licensing period for military spouses to make it easier for them to start working while stationed in Georgia
Meet Jody Hice
Jody was born in Atlanta and grew up in Tucker, Georgia where he ran track and played football at Tucker High School. Jody graduated from Asbury College. He earned his master’s degree from Southwestern Seminary and his doctorate in ministry from Luther Rice Seminary. For nearly 25 years, he served churches in Barrow, Gwinnett, Taylor, and Walton counties. He has also served as a professor at Luther Rice Seminary.
In September 2008 – and in years since, Dr. Hice joined with
32 other pastors across the nation in challenging an IRS code that he considers an attack upon religious liberty. The IRS threatened churches with loss of tax-exempt status and criminal sanctions if political issues were addressed from the pulpit. Hice took his bold stand by formally endorsing a candidate in a Sunday message and sending a copy of it to the IRS. The IRS backed down.
As a pastor, Dr. Jody Hice was a leader of the annual Pulpit Freedom Sunday movement sponsored by the Alliance Defending Freedom. This yearly event challenges the “Johnson Amendment” to the IRS tax code which censors what pastors can and cannot say from the pulpit. Just last year over 1,600 pastors nationwide participated in Pulpit Freedom Sunday. As a congressman, Jody introduced legislation to abolish the “Johnson Amendment.” Through his leadership
in this battle with the IRS, Dr. Hice has shown himself to be a proven fighter for our constitutional rights and protector of our freedom of speech.
Jody and Dee Dee Hice were married in 1983 and raised their two daughters in Walton County. Jody and Dee Dee now reside in Greensboro, Georgia and love spending time with their four grandchildren.
In 2014, Jody Hice was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives to serve Georgia’s 10th Congressional District.
Jody Hice, along with fellow Congressmen Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan, was a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus. The House Freedom Caucus (HFC) gives a voice to countless Americans who feel that Washington does not represent them. They support open, accountable and limited government, the Constitution and the rule of law, and policies that promote the liberty, safety, and prosperity of all Americans.
Since 2015, Congressman Jody Hice has served on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform where he lead the fight against things such as the failed impeachment attempt and H.R. 1. He has continuously sought out corruption and helped hold government accountable.
