Voter Suppression GA Lawsuit Details

Seriously? Only Kemp would say that a security review by DHS would have
given the federal government too much power over the state system.

 The plaintiffs propose a number of reforms, including ending the use of electronic voting machines without a paper trail and stopping purges of infrequent voters, and asks that these changes be implemented prior to the 2020 election. The suit also requests that Georgia be placed back under preclearance requirements, which required a federal judge to approveproposed statewidevoting measures to ensure they did not harm minority voters. Georgia was freed from this supervision in 2013 when the Supreme Court struck down part of the Voting Rights Act.

The suit also cites problems with Georgia’s election infrastructure, arguing that Kemp did not take proper measures to ensure election security. Two years ago, Kemp turned down the Department of Homeland Security’s offer to provide election and cybersecurity assistance before the 2016 election, saying that the move would have given the federal government too much power over the state system.
