Demand that Georgia Secretary of State Kemp Process Pending Voter Registrations

by GLAAD | Updated on 10.17.18

Voter suppression takes many forms, from voter ID laws and purging voters from rosters to closing polling places early and sending misleading information to unsuspecting voters. All of these tactics target vulnerable minority communities including LGBTQ people.

We must stand up against the current voter suppression taking place in Georgia. When we limit the rights of voters in America, we undermine the most basic pillars of our democracy. Click below to demand that the Secretary of State Brian Kemp commit to processing the pending 53,000 voter registrations before November 6th.

Introduction voter with drivers license Introduction: A total of 34 states have laws requesting or requiring voters to show some form of identification at the polls, all of which are in force in 2018. Scroll over the map below for state-by state details. The remaining 16 states use other methods to verify the identity of voters. Most frequently, other identifying information provided at the polling place, such as a signature, is checked against information on file. See NCSL’s Voter Verification Without ID Documents. StateVote 2018 This page contains key information about the 2018 state legislative elections and statewide ballot measures. Please note that the information contained on this page contains information on the current, in-effect laws. A chronology of voter ID legislation since 2000 can also be found on NCSL's History of Voter ID page. Proponents see increasing requirements for identification as a way to prevent in-person voter impersonation and increase public confidence in the election process. Opponents say there is little fraud of this kind, and the burden on voters unduly restricts the right to vote and imposes unnecessary costs and administrative burdens on elections administrators. See State-by-State In-Effect Voter ID Requirements (Table Two, far below) for citations and details on what IDs are accepted and what happens when a voter does not have ID.
