Democrats say they want to move past the time in Georgia that they remember for segregation, voter suppression and racial oppression.

Great wins for voters and for the state of Georgia, right?

There are seats and positions up for election all over the United States, but for VSU students, the race that everyone has their eyes on is the Georgia's gubernatorial race of a lifetime.

Rebecca DeHart, executive director at the state Democratic Party, said no one from Kemp's office notified the Democratic Party or asked any question about the correspondence before issuing its public announcement of an investigation.

Both candidates are being backed by big-name celebrities and political heavyweights: Kemp boasts the support of Heisman Trophy victor Herschel Walker, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, while Abrams claims Oprah Winfrey and former President Barack Obama.

Potential Chelsea lineup against Crystal Palace: Hazard in contention; Barkley to start
Few could have envisioned a better start under Sarri, whose players have nearly instantly adapted to his methods and expectations. In the middle of the park, the only sticking point is the choice between Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley.

That didn't stop Kemp's office from posting a notice on Georgia's Secretary of State website, which voters visit to check their registration status or find their polling place.

The FBI declined to comment. Libertarian Party candidate Ted Metz could increase the likelihood of that happening if he peels away enough voters from Kemp and Abrams.

On Thursday, PFAW barnstormed the state with civil rights legend (and PFAW board member) Dolores Huerta and comedian Cristela Alonzo, rallying activists and making sure Latino voters know the power they have to choose Georgia's next governor.

Georgia Secretary of State and Republican Gubernatorial nominee Brian Kemp.

Democrat Stacey Abrams says she believes her opponent "cooked up the charge, because he realizes, once again, he left the personal information of six million voters vulnerable".

The statement concluded that both the passenger and the driver had broken laws for seriously endangering public safety. The official Xinhua News Agency said 13 bodies have been retrieved from the river and two others remain missing.

In the event that national polls are correct and blue wave does come to fruition, look for more Republicans to follow Kemp's lead and suddenly worry about election hacking. In 2016, after the state's servers were compromised, Kemp was the only secretary of state to refuse help from the federal government to see if Russians had hacked the servers.

Kemp's dual roles as Secretary of State and candidate, a massive conflict of interest, have allowed him to engage "in acts of voter suppression aimed to decrease the turnout for" Abrams, Richard L. Hasen writes at Slate.

According to AP interviews and records released by the Georgia Democratic Party, a lawyer for election-security advocates, David Cross, notified both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Kemp's counsel Saturday that a citizen had alerted him to the flaw.

They range for rejecting certain absentee ballots, blocking approximately 53,000 voter registration forms and purging some 700,000 voters from the state's voting rolls-all targeting African-American voters. Abrams made her name in part by opposing such requirements, and the two clashed over the validity of voter registrations Abrams obtained during a drive. Through the last day of early voting, which ended on Friday, Nov. 2, 2018, Georgians cast 2,071,830 ballots with 1,886,905 in-person and 184,925 by mail.
