Democratic Party of Georgia Launches Petition Calling on Brian Kemp to Resign

Kemp is Holding Up 53,000 Voter Registrations; Nearly 70 Percent are from African-American Georgians

ATLANTA — Today, the Democratic Party of Georgia launched a petition calling on Brian Kemp to resign his position of Secretary of State.

The language of the petition is as follows:

We are voters from across Georgia. We are fed up with Brian Kemp’s long effort to disenfranchise voters. He purged 1.4 million people from the rolls. 214 polling locations have closed under his watch. And now, he is holding up the voter registrations of 53,000 Georgians as the election nears. Brian Kemp cannot be trusted to run an election in which he is a candidate at the top of the ticket. We demand that he resign.

The petition comes following an Associated Press report that 53,000 voter registrations have been held up due to Brian Kemp’s suppressive “exact match” policy. Nearly 70 percent of affected Georgians are African American.
