The ACLU of Georgia is demanding that the election board in Randolph County, in the southwest corner of the state, reject a proposal to close seven out of nine polling places just before the November elections. The county is predominantly African-American, and the ACLU says that the proposal is discriminatory, unjustifiable, and violates the Voting Rights Act of 1965. We’re joined by two representatives from the ACLU of Georgia, Executive Director Andrea Young and Legal Director Sean Young.
