A new lawsuit set to be filed against Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp and the plaintiffs say every Georgia voter needs to know about it right now. Have you received something like this in your mailbox? A simple postcard that might look kind of like junk mail. But if you didn’t return it and you missed voting in a few elections you, and tens of thousands more Georgians, might not be registered to vote anymore, and you’ll have received no further notice. Some say that’s an urgent problem because October 9th is the last day to re-register before the November election.
Plaintiffs say that’s why they held this press conference before their suit gets filed, so that people know to check and don’t get denied their right to vote.
They claim that up until 2018 Secretary of State Brian Kemp participated in an interstate cross check program which generates the postcards if people are believed to move.
If you didn’t send the postcard back and you sat out a few elections, you’re removed from voting, but don’t receive any notification to that effect.
