Georgia Voter Suppression Bill (NGP)

March 25, 2021

Lawsuit brought by the New Georgia Project, Black Voters Matter Fund and Rise challenging several provisions of a Georgia voter suppression bill. The case claims that the bill’s voting restrictions — including new identification requirements for absentee voting, limits on the use of absentee drop boxes, banning mobile polling places, invalidating ballots cast before 5:00 PM in the wrong precinct, banning any non-poll worker from giving food or drink, including water, to voters waiting in line and more — violate the 14th Amendment and Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act.
