Georgia Runoff Election Challenge #3

Georgia Republican Party v. Raffensperger

Lawsuit filed by Georgia Republican Party, National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and the Perdue and Loeffler campaigns challenging the signature verification process for absentee ballots cast in the 2021 Georgia Senate runoff elections. The Democratic Party of Georgia and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) intervened in the case to protect the right of all Georgians to vote. After the district court dismissed the case, the Georgia Republican Party and other plaintiffs appealed to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals but soon thereafter filed a voluntary notice of dismissal after their motion to stay (pause) the case pending appeal was denied.

This case was one of the lawsuits former President Donald Trump and his allies brought in an effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
