The Coalition, a nonprofit, claimed that Georgia’s elections board and secretary of state kept an improper date for printing and distributing backup voter lists, which burdened citizens’ right to vote. According to the plaintiffs, the state should print hard-copy backup lists of voters but only after early voting is finished. Currently, Georgia does this before early voting is completed.
