said.

"Allowing poll managers to verify proof of citizenship would alleviate the severe burden on individuals who have been flagged and placed in pending status for citizenship while still serving the state's interest of ensuring that only United States' citizens are voting", Ross wrote. It also signaled that the coalition of civil rights groups that brought the case against Kemp would likely succeed should the lawsuit continue.

Ruffalo shared a phone number for voters who have trouble at the polls. "I am here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter". He chided Republicans, including Kemp, for opposing the Affordable Care Act and only recently turning to ads that tell voters GOP candidates will protect insurance access for Americans with once-disqualifying health conditions.


Pence made the remark at a rally in Savannah, just hours after Oprah Winfrey gave a passionate endorsement of Kemp's Democratic opponent, Stacey Abrams, who is looking to become the nation's first black female governor. He's banking on running up wide margins outside metro Atlanta and holding most of the GOP votes closer to the city.

Several civil rights groups sued Kemp, the state's top official overseeing elections, including his own, in October after an Associated Press investigation published last month found that his office had 53,000 voter registration applications pending under the state's "exact match" protocol.

Kemp's involvement in election procedures while a candidate has also drawn criticism.


Friday's ruling required Kemp to allow 3,000 of those people, whose voting registration was placed in "pending" status due to questions about their US citizenship, to vote in the November 6 USA midterm election if they present proof of citizenship at the polls.

The ACLU announced on Friday that another court had sided against Kemp in a different voting rights case.

Kemp's campaign did not respond to a request for comment. "Nonetheless, the state and counties will comply with" the ruling.
