Judge declines Kemp's request to pause absentee ballot injunction

This is great news https://www.ajc.com/news/local-govt--politics/judge-declines-kemp-request-pause-absentee-ballot-injunction/BxTbpmoONQkedOLM4I7v1M/?utm_source=newspaper&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=6284552&&

A federal judge has declined to pause an injunction she ordered that changes how Georgia elections officials evaluate certain absentee ballots.

Secretary of State Brian Kemp had requested that U.S. District Court Judge Leigh Martin May stay the injunction she issued last week while Kemp’s legal team appeals the decision regarding signature mismatches to a higher court.

In an order filed late Tuesday — a week before Election Day — May said she would not do so. She wrote that granting a stay “would only cause confusion, as Secretary Kemp has already issued guidance in accordance with the injunction to county elections officials.”

“The Court finds that the public interest is best served by allowing qualified absentee voters to vote and have their votes counted,” May wrote.

2. Good.



They are going to be pulling out every stop to try to keep people from voting and/or keep votes from being counted.

3. He's desperate

He knows the only way he can win is to cheat. Voter suppression couldn't be more obvious.

14. That unfortunately describes a huge number of Georgia voters.

The rest of us are voting for Stacey Abrams and working to get her elected.

15. Chipping away at these racist vote suppression tactics.

The more sunshine on the process, the closer we get to true democracy.
