GA Sec. of State's Office Releases Documents Ahead of Lawsuit

Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Thousands of pages of election documents were released by the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office ahead of a hearing in an open records lawsuit. 


The watchdog group American Oversight says the Secretary of State Brad Raffensburg’s office did not respond to dozens of requests for election records in recent months. American Oversight bills itself as a nonpartisan ethics watchdog investigating voter suppression. 


In the lawsuit, filed earlier this month, it said it had filed 61 requests for public records with the secretary of state over the past 19 months. It said the office had produced records in response to only three of those requests. After a judge scheduled today’s hearing, the office released documents in response to many of the group’s requests.
