Georgia: suit against new rules restricting voter registration drives

From a press release from the Advancement Project describes a suit just filed against the Georgia State Board of Elections' new voter-registration rules: The two new requirements being challenged in the case are: 1) a mandate that all voter registration forms must be sealed prior to being handed to a private voter registration organizer; and 2) a prohibition on copying voter registration forms. In both instances, third-party voter registration groups would no longer have an opportunity to view and utilize information contained on the forms, which will severely limit their ability to encourage voter registration and participation in traditionally underrepresented—minority, youth, and economically disadvantaged—communities.

More information on the case, including the complaint and exhibits is here.
