Georgia's Secretary of State Brian Kemp, issued a statement Friday, strongly urging Georgians to stop threatening presidential electors.

"The Presidential election is over but, unfortunately, the vitriol remains," stated Secretary of State Brian Kemp. "Our office has received numerous reports of individuals hurling insults and threats at Georgia's Electors because they are unsettled with America's choice for President of the United States."

Georgia's 16 members of the electoral college will meet at the Capital on December 19 to cast their votes for the next President of the United States. 

Georgia's 16 electoral college vote went to president-elect Donald Trump. 

Kemp says, "The electoral process in America has worked, and everyone - Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and others - should respect the will of Georgia's voters and the Electors who represent them."
