Justice Department Sues Georgia Over Voting Violation

The Justice Department filed suit against Georgia and its chief election official to ensure that residents who are in the military overseas can vote in the state’s Aug. 21 federal primary election, the federal government announced today.

The suit was filed because Georgia wasn’t planning to send absentee ballots to service members within the required 45 day before an election, the Justice Department said in a press release.

“Our uniformed service members and overseas citizens deserve a full opportunity to participate in all elections of our nation’s leaders including runoff elections for federal office in states where they are held” Thomas E. Perez, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division, said in a press release.

To meet the deadline, Georgia officials must send the ballots before July 7.
