FIFTY-FIVE THOUSAND voter registrations "misplaced" in Georgia.
"Republicans are already cheating the elections where ever they hold power. Criminally treasonous politicians of the GOP, some of us know our constitution, and see all of your violations of our rights, and half the country will hang you treasonous pricks if you don't quit lying, and get elected on lies. Two weeks to go, too late to start telling the truth now, I guess you better hope you don't win GOP politicians!" --Rob McDonald
Hell, it's not vote fraud / voter suppression when the Republicans do it, right?
Lawyers’ Committee sues Georgia over missing voter applications

The national Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights sued Secretary of State Brian Kemp and five Georgia counties on Friday, asking a state judge to make sure more than 55,000 people will be able to vote in the Nov. 4 general election.
The lawsuit comes in direct response to the handling of voter registration applications by the state and Fulton, DeKalb, Chatham, Muscogee and Clayton as they were submitted by the New Georgia Project, a Democratic-backed group under investigation by Kemp over accusations of voter registration fraud.
More than 50,000 of the paper forms submitted by the group seem to be lost in the state’s voting system, Lawyers’ Committee attorney Julie Houk said. They neither appear on voter rolls nor do they show up on lists of “pending” voters who have been asked to provide more information to verify who they are.
An additional 5,000 of the forms do appear on pending lists, but Houk said some of the forms show the information originally submitted to be accurate. In other words, the Lawyers’ Committee is questioning why these voters must provide additional proof of identification.
The lawsuit, filed late Friday in Fulton County Superior Court, comes after Kemp declined Thursday to meet with the group about their concerns.
