Petition Urges Attorney General Holder To Investigate Georgia Secretary of State
" ColorOfChange has launched a petition demanding that the Department of Justice intervene to investigate the Georgia Secretary of State’s refusal to process some 40,000 voter registration forms. It is the largest online civil rights organization, boasting 900,000 members.

On Monday, October 28, 2014, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Christopher Brasher declined to intervene in a dispute over more than 56,000 voter registration applications. The NAACP, Georgia NAACP, and the voter advocacy group New Georgia Project, had sued Secretary Kemp claiming that he was not processing the applications quickly enough. The election is on November 4th. The plaintiffs say it could mean that thousands of votes won’t count because their names have not shown up on voter rolls. Brasher said the groups failed to prove that Kemp had broken the law.

In response to the Georgia court’s decision, Rashad Robinson, executive director of ColorOfChange , issued the following statement. “Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp’s refusal to process 40,000 voter registration forms from would-be first-time voters from already underrepresented Black, Latino and Asian communities is an unacceptable dereliction of duty from the state’s top election official "
