ATLANTA – Yesterday, Georgia elections officials released the new absentee ballot application forms to comply with the requirements in the state’s new anti-voter law (SB202).

“Georgia’s anti-voter law (SB202) is requiring voters to provide sensitive personal information in an era where identity theft is easy,” said Rahul Garabadu, voting rights attorney of the ACLU of Georgia. “Our lawsuit challenges these unnecessary and more burdensome ID requirements that will have the heaviest impact on voters of color and voters with disabilities.”
