The news from Georgia is confusing: News articles tell us that the U.S. Justice Department has struck down both the Georgia's voter registration database verification rules and its newly passed voter ID law. Our reading of the DoJ letter and the response from the Secretary of State is that it only affects the voter registration database verification process, but it's hard to tell. Read the DoJ letter and Handel's statement for yourself. The first paragraph references letters we were unable to find. If you find a link to them, please send the link to dvn-tips@votersunite.org. All of our featured articles are about this topic....
