The Democratic Party of Georgia, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, and three Georgia residents filed suit against several state and local election officials, alleging local election administration policies result in extended waiting times at the polls, deterring citizens from voting. Deputy Secretary of State argues that petitioners had earlier opposed Secretary's legislation that would have required counties to add more polling places, equipment, and/or poll workers if any polling place had a wait time of more than an hour at any point throughout the day.
