Yet another voting rights case and another partial victory for those seeking to preserve the right to vote.
In Martin v. Crittenden, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia (per May, J.) held that the Gwinnett County, Georgia Board of Election Members:
[A]re hereby ENJOINED from rejecting absentee ballots containing an error or omission relating to the absentee voter’s year of birth and are ORDERED to count such ballots in the November 6, 2018 election [and] are ORDERED to delay certification until such ballots have been counted.
I am old enough to recall that one of the worse things you could be called in a political or social debate was “Un-American.” Well, those who try to suppress voting and limit voting rights are truly and completely Un-American.
