The motion was filed by Fair Fight Action in US district court, hours before a purge of inactive voter registrations. The judge's decision allows the action to go ahead after he was assured that he finds some people should not have been removed, they can be reinstated. In October, Secretary of State Raffensperger released a list of 313,000+ voters whose registrations risked being canceled, 4% of GA's registered voters. Critics say government records on inactive voters can be incorrect and that no one should not be removed from the rolls for not participating.
“Georgians should not lose their right to vote simply because they have not expressed that right in recent elections, and Georgia’s practice of removing voters who have declined to participate in recent elections violates the United States Constitution,” Fair Fight Action CEO Lauren Groh-Wargo said in a statement .
