The elections board in a large east Georgia county is trying to decide what to do about cases of voters who don't live where they say they do.

The Richmond County Board of Elections plans to take up the issue during a Monday night meeting.

Board members last month asked Executive Director Lynn Bailey to look into several cases of registered voters whose home addresses appeared to be vacant lots, abandoned houses or businesses.

Bailey is expected to present a report on her findings when the board convenes at 6 p.m. Monday. Bailey said she also expects to have a plan of action on how to address the issue and improve the accuracy of county voting rolls.
