Clayton County Government maintains an A+ rating from Ballotpedia for the openness, accountability, and transparency displayed throughout the website. Based on a transparency checklist, created by Ballotpedia, we display information to the public and remain open and transparent.
Ballotpedia was originally formed by the Citizens in Charge Foundation on May 30, 2007. In March of 2008, the Sam Adams Alliance became Ballotpedia's sponsor, continuing their mission of using online media to promote access to government. On July 1, 2009, the Lucy Burns Institute (LBI) became Ballotpedia's official sponsor. LBI is a nonprofit 501c3 organization that helps keep things running with a small editorial staff and enough server power to meet the demands of our traffic.
