Judicial orders stop polling voters in two provinces in Georgia before the end of the Senate

A judge in Georgia on Monday ruled that two provinces of the state could not invalidate voice registrations based on unverified address changes.

“Defendants are ordered to remove any challenged voters in Ben Hill and Muscogee counties from the registration lists based on National Data of Address data,” U.S. District Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner wrote in an order, according to Reuters.

Abrams Gardner is the sister of former Democratic candidate for governor and suffrage activist Stacey Abrams.

The case was brought by Democracy Forward, a legal group led by a lawyer for the Democratic Party, reports Politico.

“We continue to monitor how other provinces in Georgia are responding to the repression scheme,” said attorney Marc Elias. “Where necessary, we will sue and we will win.”

The initial challenge to the voter registration rolls was brought by a citizen who told officials in Muscogee that he had access to the publicly available voting data to claim that some voters on the rolls there had moved out of Georgia.

More than 2 million people in the state have already cast their votes ahead of the Senate by-elections on January 5, a contest that will determine the control of the U.S. Senate.
