What Stacey Abrams Will Tell Us About America Tonight

Georgia Dems accused of ‘hacking voting system’ blame Rep rival for ‘power abuse

Georgia Dems accused of ‘hacking voting system’ blame Rep rival for ‘power abuse

Online, Dolores also starred in Get Out The Vote videos in English and Spanish, urging Georgia voters to turn out for Abrams.

The same poll also shows 52% of Georgia voters approve of President Trump's job performance with 43% disapproving of the Commander-in-Chief.

Polls suggest Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams are locked in a tight race that even before Sunday had evolved into a bitter back-and-forth over voting rights and ballot security.

The Republican Secretary of State of Georgia accused his midterm rivals of attempting to hack the state's voter registration system just two days before the crucial election.

In a statement on Sunday, Kemp's office said they had officially requested the FBI to investigate the matter. While they prepare for tomorrow, the race between Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp is heating up.

"Upon information and belief, there is not and never was any basis for Defendant Kemp to accuse the Democratic Party of Georgia of seeking to hack into the state's election systems", the lawsuit says.

The website's vulnerability could allow someone to access personal information, such as driver's license numbers and addresses, and potentially change voter registration information without permission, said Richard DeMillo, a computer scientist at Georgia Tech.

In Georgia, critics have drawn attention to Kemp's dual role as candidate for governor and supervisor of the state's elections, in his capacity as Georgia secretary of state.

Stumping for Abrams, Oprah makes impassioned plea for turnout
Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp still leads the Secretary of State's office despite being a candidate for governor. Vice President Mike Pence is in Georgia today to stump for Kemp and President Donald Trump will be in the state this weekend.

"Defendant Brian P. Kemp is a candidate for Governor in Georgia".

Finally, Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan hit the ground in Georgia, going door-to-door to encourage Georgians to vote for the Democrat.

"It looks pretty suspicious, and I would say that regardless of which party it was", Alan Abramowitz, a professor of political science at Emory University in Atlanta, told the Reuters news agency. A representative for the Department of Homeland Security confirmed the agency had been notified, but it deferred to Georgia officials for details.

Election night in Georgia will also tell us about the power, or lack thereof, of several voting groups in statewide elections - none more so than suburban women. Kemp counters that he's following state and federal law and that it's Abrams and her affiliated voting advocacy groups trying to help people, including noncitizens, cast ballots illegally.

While she is not the favorite of white voters, Abrams is nevertheless performing slightly better among whites than Hillary Clinton did in 2016, garnering 26 percent compared to Clinton's 21 percent. As Secretary of State, Kemp has backed strict ID requirements.

President Donald Trump has rallied in the state on behalf of Kemp, while former President Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey have made appearances on behalf of Abrams.

According to AP interviews and records released by the Georgia Democratic Party, a lawyer for election-security advocates, David Cross, notified both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Kemp's counsel Saturday that a citizen had alerted him to the flaw.

Kemp's office has held up some 53,000 voter applications, the vast majority of them belonging to African Americans and other voters of colour, according to a recent AP report.
