The deadline to register to vote in Georgia has passed and Secretary of State, Brian Kemp is sitting on 53,000 unprocessed voter registrations, 70% of which belong to Black applicants. The most important role of the secretary of state's office is to make sure elections are fair, accessible, and secure. Processing these registration forms is not only the right thing to do — but it's also his job.
Brian Kemp has a long history of suppressing the Black vote in the state of Georgia. Under his watch, Georgia has cancelled 1.2 million voter registrations since 2012 and has targeted and prosecuted Black activists who try to increase absentee voter turnout in Black communities.
