State and national GOP groups challenge Saturday voting

The fight over Saturday voting in Georgia continues after several Republican organizations filed an appeal Tuesday afternoon to the Supreme Court of Georgia.

Saturday early voting was initially blocked by the Secretary of State's office due to a law preventing such voting within two days of a holiday. A Fulton County judge last week rebuffed the Secretary of State's office and ruled that Saturday voting could go ahead.
On Monday, the Court of Appeals for Georgia refused to block that order. After that ruling, the Georgia Secretary of State’s office declined to continue the legal battle.

The cause was picked up by the Georgia Republican Party, the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the Republican National Committee. If the high court does not intervene, at least 13 counties, including Clarke, will conduct voting this Saturday.
