"Exact Match" Lawsuit Victory helps Thousands of Eligible Voters
The Georgia NAACP along with Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Atlanta, and the Georgia Coalition for the Peoples’ Agenda announced a settlement today in a lawsuit challenging Georgia’s exact-match voter registration verification scheme. The suit alleged Georgia’s “exact match” system violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and deprived eligible Georgians of their fundamental right to vote under the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution, and resulted in Georgia restoring more than 42,000 previously purged voters to the rolls.
