Congressional panel seeks documents about Georgia’s voting practices

WASHINGTON — The Democratic leaders of a U.S. House committee with subpoena power are requesting documents from senior Georgia officials about alleged voting irregularities in the state during the 2018 election.

Specifically, in letters to Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, the officials from the House Oversight and Reform Committee are seeking documents related to Georgia’s “exact match” law, the consolidation of polling sites in the state and long lines reported at the polls on Election Day.

“The Committee is particularly concerned by reports that Georgians faced unprecedented challenges with registering to vote and significant barriers to casting their votes during the 2018 election.” House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings and U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin stated in the letters.

Kemp accused the Democrats of “playing politics” while Congress has more important work to do, such as providing relief to South Georgia farmers and others who were slammed by Hurricane Michael. Other Republicans saw it as an effort to “deligitimize” Kemp’s victory because Democrats did not like the results of the 2018 election for governor.
