Director of strategic communication Abigail Collazo said it was "pathetic" that Kemp "has only now suddenly made a decision to find a conscience as polls are tightening and Georgia voters are making it clear that they reject the kind of hate he and his allies have been spewing around the state".

The Republican candidate for governor in Georgia, Brian Kemp, has faced scrutiny for declining to step down from his roll as secretary of state, which oversees the state's elections.

According to the Associated Press, only a deputy registrar can verify proof of citizenship at a polling place, which the groups argued amounted to an undue burden.

Stacey Abrams just may win.

A federal judge on Friday said Georgia must allow 3,000 new USA citizens to vote in the midterm elections if they show proof of citizenship.

As a result of policies Secretary Kemp has seen to, tens of thousands of majority-Black potential Georgia voters have seen their applications placed on hold.

"She's sick of political parties like me", Lemon said.

Kemp and Republicans have strongly pushed back on the assertion that, either through malice or mismanagement, his office has implemented policies and backed laws that sow confusion and make it more hard for legal citizens to vote.

On Sunday, President Trump will also be in Georgia campaigning for Kemp. "Come on, Oprah! It's dehumanizing, it's completely baseless, it's totally cruel, and again I say, you're much better than that and you're much bigger than that".

"Seven million Georgians are now on our voter rolls - that's one million more than when I took office in 2010", Kemp said.

Kemp's spokeswoman, Candice L. Broce, called the ruling "a minor change to the current system".

U.S. District Judge Eleanor L. Ross said Kemp's restrictions raised "grave concerns for the Court about the differential treatment inflicted on a group of individuals who are predominantly minorities", the Washington Post reported.
