SAVANNAH, Ga. — A coastal Georgia elections board member twice censured by fellow board members has resigned. Chatham County Board of Elections member Debbie Rauers announced her resignation Thursday. She's accused of bumping an off-duty poll worker with her car at a Savannah polling place last Tuesday. Chatham County Republican Party Chairman Don Hodges says Rauers has been planning to resign since December. The party is reviewing applications to replace Rauers on the board. A police report says a woman matching Rauers’ description tried to park her car in a spot that another woman was saving for a food truck. The report says the driver “angrily jerked her car forward,” bumping the other woman’s legs. The other woman wasn't injured.
