Voting issues mark final stretch of Georgia governor’s race

ATLANTA (AP) — Ahead of the Nov. 6 election, Democrats and voting rights groups in Georgia are staging massive voter protection operations.

They say it is needed because the state’s chief elections officer, Secretary of State Brian Kemp, has a history of suppressing votes and can’t impartially oversee an election he’s running in.

Kemp, a Republican, is vying for governor against Democrat Stacey Abrams, who would be the first black female governor in the U.S. if elected.

Public polling has shown them locked in a statistical dead heat for much of the race.

Kemp says he is following the law and has made it easier to vote in Georgia, including implementing the state’s first online registration system.

His campaign says that a series of voting rights controversies in the state have been manufactured by Abrams to spark outrage.
