Yesterday,  NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF), All Voting is Local, Georgia, Georgia NAACP, Black Voters Matter Fund, SPLC Action Fund and the League of Women Voters sent letters to officials in ten counties urging them to reject the baseless claims being made to challenge voter eligibility ahead of the January 5, 2021 runoff election. The letters came after True the Vote and a group of residents filed challenges to voters’ eligibility based on National Change of Address data which can be unreliable and inaccurate. Mass voter challenges have long been a tool of voter suppression targeting Black voters and other voters of color, and the baseless challenges made in counties across the state may constitute an illegal form of voter intimidation. Election officials in Cobb County overwhelmingly rejected similar mass voter eligibility challenges last week. Voting advocates urge county officials to categorically reject these challenges and issue an assurance to voters that their right to vote is protected.
