Georgia Voter Suppression Bill (AAJC)

Asian Americans Advancing Justice Atlanta v. Raffensperger

Lawsuit brought by Asian Americans Advancing Justice Atlanta challenging several provisions of Georgia voter suppression law Senate Bill 202. The case claims that the law’s voting restrictions — including new identification requirements for absentee voting, limits on the use of absentee drop boxes, restrictions on the collection of absentee ballots and more — violate the 14th and 15th Amendments and Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. The Republican National Committee (RNC), National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) and Georgia Republican Party intervened in the case to protect S.B. 202. The case was administratively closed after being consolidated with five others bringing similar claims against S.B. 202. All future filings and updates can be found in In re: Georgia Senate Bill 202.
