Georgia's top elections official says a lawsuit alleging the state failed to provide voter registration services at public assistance offices is "meritless."
Secretary of State Brian Kemp says the groups who filed the lawsuit "are more interested in grabbing headlines than increasing opportunities for Georgians to register to vote."
The lawsuit was filed Monday by the Georgia State Conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the Georgia People's Agenda.
It claims Georgia has been engaging in "widespread, ongoing noncompliance" with the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, denying thousands of low-income Georgians the opportunity to vote. But Kemp says voter registration and participation among all Georgians has continuously increased even as the state has strengthened election security.

    Nole#1, your comment is racist and offensive. The majority of people on food stamps are white, and public education is for everyone and it is not free; we all pay taxes for it, fool. You are a disgrace to my race.

    If you can't meet the guidelines to vote then you are out of luck regardless of color. Looks like the race card is the only thing that is being played here to me. Maybe whites should sue to get food stamps and free education.
