via the augusta free press:

The State Board of Elections listed 1,794 new city voters from February to the end of September, a week before the deadline to register. Almost 390 were listed by the State Board as rejected. The number is not precise because some voters are listed twice, having had their registration dismissed for “irregularities” more than once. Those numbers suggest that almost 18 percent of new registrations in the city were rejected, but it does not reflect the 500 forms the registrar reported receiving just on the final day, nor does it reflect any that may have been rejected from that group. Adding to the confusion, it is not clear if those who received the “irregularities” letter have since been officially rejected.

so, yes, we’re still afraid of voter suppression.

by the way, if you can’t vote on nov 4, you can vote absentee in person at your polling place.
