#TakeAction and make your voice heard on voting rights in Georgia and the US
With just two weeks to go before Election Day, Brian Kemp, Georgia’s Secretary of State and GOP-nominee for governor has suspended 53,000 voter applications, and removed 107,000 registered voters for not voting in 2016. The suspended applications are disproportionally African American and minority residents, with 70% belonging to a minority group.
As Georgia’s voter registration ended on Oct. 9, it is unclear if those affected will be able to exercise their right to vote without a reversal of this decision. The latest polling average from RealClearPolitics has Brian Kemp up by 1.5% over Stacey Abrams, while FiveThirtyEight gives Kemp a .4% advantage. Abrams would be the first black woman to be elected governor in US history.
