Georgia Runoff Early Vote (Houston County)
New Georgia Project v. Shelton
Lawsuit brought by the New Georgia Project against Houston County regarding its alleged failure to provide adequate early voting dates for Georgia Senate runoff elections. The plaintiffs filed a petition for a writ of mandamus as well as an emergency motion for a temporary restraining order asking the court to direct Houston County to allow more early voting dates. The trial court denied the plaintiffs’ petition and motion and the Georgia Court of Appeals affirmed.
