fight back: ga voters ‘on hold’ can still vote
By Erin White

Georgia Republican Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp doesn’t want Black and brown voters to go to the polls on election day. He’s so fearful that most of us are going to vote in Stacey Abrams as America’s first Black woman governor, that some recent Georgia voter registration applications seem to have gotten stuck “on hold” at Kemp’s office. Meaning some of you are not technical registered
Don’t let this deter you—you can still vote. So the first thing you need to do is find out if your application is one of 53,000 applications on hold. Check your application, here.
If your status is on hold, or currently valid, you’ll want to find your polling place. Once you log into MyVoterPage you’ll find your location along with open hours and early voting hours. Seriously consider voting early.
Prepare to cast a provisional ballot if your status is on hold. In order to do so and have your vote counted, you MUST rectify whatever issue caused your status to be on hold within THREE days. Crucial. You can also rectify the issue ahead of time, just in case. Check out the details, here.
