Election Officials Sued For Georgia County's Mail-In Ballot Rejection Practices

There will be a number of lawsuits filed to stop the GOP voter suppression operations. Here is a case filed in Georgia on one county rejecting 10 times the number of mailed in ballots as the rest of the state https://talkingpointsmemo.com/muckraker/georgia-lawsuit-absentee-ballots

State and local election officials in Georgia face a lawsuit over the rate at which one county has been rejecting mail-in ballots ahead of next month’s election.

The complaint — filed by the group Coalition for Good Governance, on behalf of individual voters and candidates in the state — takes issue with the relatively high rejection rates of absentee ballots in Gwinnett County, which is outside of Atlanta.

It comes on the heels of a Atlanta Journal-Constitution report Monday finding that the county had rejected 8.5 percent of the absentee ballots its received so far, compared with a statewide rejection rate of under 2 percent.

The lawsuit zeroed in on the 128 ballots — out of 391 ballots rejected — Gwinnett County tossed out because they were missing the voter’s date of birth, or the current date had been filled in instead.

Group Sues Tennessee County Over Invalid Voter Registrations

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A group representing black voters is suing the election commission in Tennessee's largest county after thousands of registrations were deemed invalid by the commission.

The Tennessee Black Voter Project filed a lawsuit Monday in Shelby County Chancery Court asking a judge to allow the group to inspect voter registration forms that the county's Election Commission has rejected.

Groups including the Black Voter Project submitted more than 36,000 registrations to the Election Commission in Shelby County, which includes Memphis. But the commission said about 55 percent were found invalid because they were incomplete, they were duplicates from previously registered voters or they came from convicted felons.

The group wants to inspect records detailing why applications were rejected. The commission did not immediately return a call seeking comment Tuesday.

Kemp Blasts 'Outside Agitators' After Scrutiny Of Policy Blocking 53K From Voting

The term outside agitator has a long history dating back to the Jim Crow days. Freedom riders and persons attempting to register non-whites in the south were often called outside agitators. Kemp is using the Jim Crow terminology today because he was caught https://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/brian-kemp-outside-agitators-voter-registration

As Yahoo News’ Jon Ward points out, the term “outside agitators” has a racially tinged history and was used by segregationists in the South.

Though Kemp was perhaps referring to the national media and his gubernatorial opponent’s out-of-state supporters, he used a racially charged term to defend a policy viewed as an attempt to keep low-income and minority residents from voting.

“Despite what you hear or read, the numbers are clear. While outside agitators disparage this office and falsely attack us, we have kept our heads down and remained focused on ensuring secure, accessible, and fair elections for all voters,” Kemp said in the statement. “The fact is that it has never been easier to register to vote and get engaged in the electoral process in Georgia, and we are incredibly proud to report this new record.”

The statement touting the voter registration statistics came after records obtained by the Associated Press earlier this week revealed that a secretary of state’s office policy kept 53,000 people from registering to vote. The policy allows the state to delay or block the registrations of residents when information on their voter registration form does not match exactly with existing state records
