“This dangerous bill does nothing to help voters and election workers. It will wreak havoc on Georgia’s elections and must be stopped," said Anne-Gray Herring, policy analyst of Common Cause Georgia.

"Georgia’s Department of Justice has already spoken against this ambiguous bill and the chilling effect it will have for Georgia prosecutors," said Aunna Dennis, executive director of Common Cause Georgia.

Common Cause Georgia Calls on Legislature to Pass Compliant Voting Maps 

ATLANTA — A three-judge panel for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia issued a stay in Common Cause v. Raffensperger, the federal court challenge of Georgia’s 2021 congressional voting map. The trial set to begin on November 13, 2023 has been postponed in light of the state defendants’ decision to not seek a stay pending appeal of a separate challenge to the maps that resulted in a court ruling that found that map in violation of the Voting Rights Act (VRA). That ruling ordered the Georgia Legislature to draw new Congressional and state legislative voting maps by December 8, 2023. The Georgia General Assembly will convene in a special session beginning November 29, 2023 to consider new voting maps.
