JUDGE LESLIE ABRAMS GARDNER, SISTER OF STACEY ABRAMS, ORDERED TWO COUNTIES IN GA TO REVERSE A DECISION THAT WOULD REMOVE 4,000 VOTERS FROM THE ROLLS
Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner, sister of Stacey Abrams, ordered two counties in Georgia to reverse a decision that would remove 4,000 voters from the rolls, a move that is expected to help Democrats in the approaching run-off election.
According to state data published Thursday, nearly 2.1 million people have cast their ballots in the Peach State, the election that will ultimately determine the fate of both chambers of Congress.
Challenges against roughly 4,000 voters in Muscogee County and more than 150 voters in Ben Hill County were raised as part of an effort by True the Vote, a Texas-based conservative group, to coordinate challenges under a Georgia law allowing any registered voter to challenge the eligibility of any other vote within the same county, DJHJ Media reports.
The group said it was bringing challenges in each of Georgia’s 159 counties against more than 364,000 voters whose residency was being questioned based on the change of address data obtained from the U.S. Postal Service.
