Judge Orders Georgia to Re-Open Voter Registration Ahead of Major Runoff

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

A federal judge on Thursday ordered the state of Georgia to temporarily re-open early voter registration as a tense special election approaches.

U.S. District Judge Timothy Batten ruled in favor of the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, an advocacy group that accused Georgia of violating federal law by reducing the registration period ahead of the 6th District congressional runoff on June 20.

I can only hope that the voters are informed of this. I've read in another article, on this same topic, that the judge did not mention or force the advertisement of the change.
