Amicus Brief Filed in Support of Challenge to Unsecure Paperless Electronic Voting System in Georgia

On July 17, 2018, Altshuler Berzon LLP attorneys and co-counsel in Georgia filed an amicus curiae brief on behalf of Common Cause, the National Election Defense Coalition, and Protect Democracy in Curling v. Kemp (N.D. Ga.), No. 1:17-cv-02989-AT, supporting a challenge to Georgia’s use of unreliable and unverifiable touchscreen electronic voting machines that have no voter-verified, auditable paper trail.

The amicus curiae brief presents to the court overwhelming evidence in the public record that establishes that the threat to Georgia voters’ constitutional rights posed by the use of these unreliable and unverifiable voting machines in the upcoming November election is very real, and urges the court to deny the state defendants’ motion to dismiss and to promptly consider and grant the plaintiffs’ anticipated motion for preliminary injunctive relief to protect the plaintiffs’ rights and Georgia’s democracy.
