ACLU joins Georgia voter verification suit
ATLANTA, Georgia: On Tuesday, July 6, 2010, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), along with several other civil liberty activist groups, "filed a motion to intervene in a lawsuit filed by Georgia over the state's voter verification process," serving as defendants in the case. Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp is seeking "clearance" after the United States Justice Department rejected a request made on behalf of Republican Governor Sonny Perdue to alter the state's election procedures so as to make it a requirement for "first-time, would-be voters confirm they are in fact U.S. citizens."
