Court of Appeals Sides with ACLU of Georgia on Absentee Issue

ELEVENTH CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS SIDES WITH THE ACLU OF GEORGIA AND REJECTS SECRETARY OF STATE’S REQUEST FOR ABSENTEE VOTERS

The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals issued an order denying the Secretary of State’s request for a stay of the district court’s temporary restraining order that has been in effect since October 25th. The temporary restraining order required election officials to provide due process for voters whose absentee ballots or applications were rejected because of an alleged mismatch of their signatures.

“Today the Eleventh Circuit agreed with the ACLU of Georgia and protected the due process rights of very Georgia citizen who votes by absentee ballot. Georgia voters and hard-working elections officials are ready to move on with this election. We trust the Secretary will do the same,” state Sean J. Young, Legal Director  of the ACLU of Georgia said Friday.
