Georgia Releases List Of Nearly 315,000 Voters Set To Be Removed From Rolls
Over 300,000 people in Georgia are set to be removed from the state’s voter rolls ― but it won’t happen without a warning.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) announced Wednesday that the full list of voters at risk of removal is now publicly available. The state has faced scrutiny over its plan to cancel the voter registrations of 313,243 “inactive voters” who are thought to have moved away. Around 65% of the people on the list ― 204,937 in all ― haven’t had contact with election officials in several years, and either didn’t respond to a confirmation mailing or had mail returned as undeliverable. The remaining people on the list filed change-of-address forms with the U.S. Postal Service. You can see the full list of Georgia voters set to be removed from the state’s rolls. If you see your name, then call and correct this mistake immediately.
Georgia Elects Youngest State President in NAACP History
ATLANTA, GA – In a historic vote, James “Major” Woodall (Bulloch County), 25, was elected as the new State President of the Georgia NAACP. Mr. Woodall has served as Georgia Youth & College Division State President, First Vice President of the Bulloch County Branch, and most recently as a 2018 graduate of the NAACP’s Next-Gen leadership training program. “I ran for State President because far too many people are suffocating from lack of access to healthcare, clean air and water, poor education and mass incarceration,” he says.
