Skip to comments.Civil rights groups sue Georgia Republican Brian Kemp over 53,000 'pending' voter registrations

(CNN)A coalition of advocacy groups has launched a lawsuit to block Georgia from enforcing a practice critics say endangers the votes of more than 50,000 people in November and potentially larger numbers headed into the 2020 presidential election cycle.
The Campaign Legal Center and Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law argued in the suit, which was filed in a federal district court on Thursday, that the state's "exact match" requirement violates the Voting Rights Act, the National Voter Registration Act and the First and Fourteenth Amendments. The office of Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who is now running for governor in a hotly contested race with Democratic former state House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams, used the system from 2013 to 2016 but stopped in 2017 as part of a settlement stemming from separate litigation. But the Republican-held state legislature soon stepped in and passed the protocol into law. A recent Associated Press report found around 53,000 people -- nearly 70% of them African-Americans -- had their registrations placed in limbo because of some kind of mismatch with drivers license or social security information. Kemp, in a tweet, said, "The 53,000 Georgians on our 'pending' list can vote in the Nov. 6th election."

“...had their registrations placed in limbo because of some kind of mismatch with drivers license or social security information....”
What? More crooked scumbag Democrats? Trying to cheat in an election? Why, how can that be??
They will find a liberal judge to go along with this. If we are lucky then the courts will get much better under Trump and all of those liberal judges will get slapped down. Fraudulent votes destroy the power of legitimate ones. With the right to vote comes the responsibility to properly register.
This is a race I will be watching closely on the night of November 6.
I am afraid whoever wins, Kemp wins, the Left may go crazy in Atlanta and Cob county.
If Abrams wins, the Right may be suspicious.
God pray for Georgia.
You know Atlanta is a large Democratic stronghold now, you know?
“”Kemp has said that those currently on the “pending” list will be able to vote in the coming election provided they can show approved identification at their polling places, which is already required by the state. Provisional ballots will also be made available in case related disputes cannot be sorted on the spot.
The Campaign Legal Center, however, is concerned that voters who cast ballots by mail will not have that opportunity, and if their ballots are rejected under the “exact match” rule — and they do not successfully navigate the bureaucracy within a 26-month window — they could see their names purged from the voter rolls. The current law allows the state to remove “inactive voters” who miss three cycles. This, Lang said, could speed up those removals.””
About time that the election supervisors challenge people to show proper ID in order to vote. There are too many people on the registration rolls that should not be there. If they have ID to prove they are authentic, then there should be no problem.
No ID-—No Vote
Voting Rights Act: Signed into law in 1965 by LBJ to get black American citizens to vote for the DEMS.
National Voter Registration Act: Signed into law in 1993 by the DEMS to allow NON-CITIZENS to vote.
Desperation, attention seeking ploy.
Ke mp is the next Governor of Georgia..
Ke mp is the next Governor of Georgia..
Abrams will contest the election results if Kemp wins.....it will be another Bush/Gore Bush/Kerry
Watch for lawyers to be running to Georgia.
I don’t think the Left will accept Gov. Kemp.
Atlanta black people might not accept it either.
"Some kind of mismatch." The article doesn't explain what sort of mismatch concerning SS or driver's license information is involved here, but is most aspects of life a mismatch concerning SS or driver's license information brings things to a halt until the mismatch is cleared up.
Just another case where some groups want no rules enforced when it comes to ensuring that only properly registered US citizens participate in our elections.
Who gives a crap what those loonies do.
Kemp is still the next Governor of Georgia.
Come Nov 6, I damn sure will be casting a vote for him.
So you don’t have to be who you say you are??
Pointless suit. They are already allowed provisional ballots
Hope they don’t plan to appeal to the Supreme Court.
He he he.
Georgia, Texas, Arizona, California and Colorado are states to watch on Nov. 6.
Going no where. Kemp is enforcing GA law. Basically what the scum bag Democrats are demanding is he break the law because they KNOW they cannot win an honest election
No you watching too much CNN. They will claim this is a horse race and then be “shocked’ when the GOP wins all the races by comfortable margins. The problem for the Fake Media in GA is they all look to the same fraudulent AJC poll to figure out what is going on in GA Politics.
we moved from Gwinnett county to Hall County (GA). when i voted, with ID, i was informed i was provisional. no big deal. my vote counted; i was informed by the state in US mail.
Founded and originally funded by the KGB. just wow.
We have voter ID in bama, but my driver’s license doesn’t match my voter registration because one has first name, maiden name, married name and the other has first, middle, married name. Long convoluted story how I ended up with it this way. In bama I just explain if they ask and no issues. Have to go get birth certificate to get it changed on license and just haven’t done it yet...lol
