TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Leon County Supervisor of Elections, Mark Earley is calling on people in the Big Bend area to let go of the rhetoric, rumors, and false claims regarding the integrity of the 2020 presidential election.

Earley said this election was the most heavily scrutinized in our history and said "all the evidence points to the accuracy and trustworthiness of this year’s election results. Those who continue to claim otherwise, with no evidence to back it up, are working against the foundations of our nation."

The supervisors play a role in overseeing smooth elections and certify the county's election results.

The letter comes as counties and states face pressure from some Republican congressmen, and an RNC campaign featuring President Trump in neighboring Lowndes County on Saturday ahead of Georgia's run-off election.
