The Justice Department has filed a federal lawsuit against the state of Georgia over a comprehensive voter suppression law that the lawsuit said discriminates against black voters. This is Kristen Clarke, assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division.

Kristen Clarke: “These legislative moves came at a time when Georgia’s black population was growing, and after a historic election that saw record turnouts across the state, particularly postal votes, which now see black voters more than white voters use.” .”

The Georgia law, passed in March, adds new voter ID requirements, shortens the postal voting window, severely restricts ballot boxes, and grants the state the power to intervene in elections in democratic circles.
