What Georgia experienced on June 9th at polls across Fulton County and beyond, is what modern-day voter suppression looks like. It's one of the most prolific methods to disenfranchise minorities in American history.



A note from ACLU: “The Georgia elections held today (June 9th) were a massive failure. Countless Georgians were deprived of their sacred right to vote. Whether it is incompetence or intentional voter suppression- the result is the same-- Georgians denied their rights as citizens in this democracy.”
