Judge rejects attempt to stop parts of Georgia voting law

US District Judge J.P. Boulee has ruled against an attempt to overturn portions of a recent Georgia voting law. The Coalition for Good Governance, who filed the lawsuit, had hoped to invalidate, in time for upcoming state run-offs, a provision requiring voters to request absentee ballots at least 11 days before election day. While the effort to file an injunction before the run-offs has failed, the Coalition’s larger lawsuit against the voting law is still pending in federal court.
