National group sues Georgia over missing voter applications

The national Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights filed suit against Secretary of State Brian Kemp and five Georgia counties late Friday, asking a state judge to make sure more than 55,000 people will be able to vote in the Nov. 4 general election.

The lawsuit comes in direct response to the handling of voter registration applications by the state and Chatham, Clayton, DeKalb, Fulton and Muscogee counties as the forms were submitted by the New Georgia Project, a Democratic-backed group under investigation by Kemp over accusations of voter registration fraud.
